JUST IN: Young People Now Learning From Me - Senator Elisha Abbo Says

Senator Elisha Abbo representing Adamawa-North has said that young people around the world are now learning from him and beginning to see the difference between aspiring for office and being in office.

The senator said this on receiving the ICON of Democracy Award last week from the Intercommunity Awareness for Change and Development Initiative in Abuja, Igbere TV reports.

Abbo appeared in a viral video early July assaulting a nursing mother who tried to defend an attendant, Bibra Warmate, at a sex toy shop in Abuja.

The lawmaker urged young people aspiring for public office to be careful of what they do which could be used against them in future.

“It is not just about being in power for the sake of being in power. There is so much responsibility on young leaders, on leaders all over the world.

“I believe that young people all over the world will be learning from me that there is now a huge gap between wanting to be in power and being in power to deal with the challenges of politics and swimming in the murky waters of Nigerian politics. And I believe that young people will draw (sic) straight from me,” he said.

Abbo added with a smile on his face, “You are all aware of what happened a few weeks back where certain things happened and I have been in the public space. I was the number one trending topic on social media. I was number one trending on Twitter and the rest of it but that is leadership.

“That is politics for you. Don’t be surprised that what you did 10 years ago would come back to haunt you and that is why you must always remember that even though you are a young person now, you will contest elections tomorrow.”
