Abbo explained that his interaction with the people of his constituency has taught a lot of lessons on the object poverty bedeviling the masses.
” I have been at home Adamawa state with my people from 11th December 2019. In the course of this fruitful stay, I had the chance to Interact with the poorest of the poor. I had the chance to pay surprise visits to old friends and to places that’s usually a no go area for the ruling elites”
He further said ” I will forever be greatlful to God for this eye opening over one month holiday at home with my people. I am happy I didn’t go to Canada as I proposed since February 2019.
One of these no go Areas is the the gully erosion site in Kabang, Mubi South. This place destroyed over 46 homes this past raining season”.
Abbo said he was shocked with terrible conditions of most the communities and sympathetize with people who lost homes during raining season .

Today I am a happy man because I have started doing something. At least I will have a good night of sleep knowing fully well that I gave someone some hope” .
