The Benue State government has claimed that Christian Adabah Abah, otherwise known as Mad Lion is the current lawmaker representing Ado, Okpowku and Ogbadibo Federal constituency.
However, checks by IDOMA VOICE on Thursday show that Hassan Anthony Saleh is currently the man speaking on behalf of the constituency in the zone.
It would be recalled that on February 9, 2016, the court of appeal held that “Hon. Adabah C. Abah is and remains the sole candidate for the 2015 Ado-Ogbadibo & Okpokwu Federal House of Representatives position. And that since Hon. Adabah Abah was not a litigant in the election matter of 2011 between Daniel Onjeh vs. Hassan Saleh, it can’t be used against him in the 2015 Election matter and that his name was merely mentioned during the proceedings was not enough to have made him a party in that case of 2011 and to be bound by it in 2015.”
However, Saleh is yet to vacate the seat while the official website of the state displays Adabah’s picture as the lawmaker representing the area.
At the moment, constituents are confused on who is actually representing their interest in the federal House of Representative.
