Abe dares Amaechi, says he’ll not leave APC

THE senator representing Rivers South-East senatorial
district in the National Assembly, Senator Magnus Abe,
has vowed that despite ‘’needless provocation and
unwarranted bitterness against him,’’ he will not to leave
the All Progressives Congress, APC, for another political
party.

Tracing the current crisis rocking the APC in Rivers State
to the March 4, 2017 meeting convened by the Minister of
Transportation, Mr. Chibuike Amaechi, in Port Harcourt,
Abe, in a statement by his spokesperson, Parry Saroh
Benson, said: “I will not leave the APC even in the face of
needless provocation and unwarranted bitterness. As I
told the state Chairman of the party, last Sunday, every
member of the party knows the cause and the reason for
the present crisis in the APC in Rivers State and I will also
state it here.”

The senator, who is the Chairman, Senate Committee on
FERMA, alleged that during the March 4, 2017 meeting,
which attracted prominent leaders of the party in the
state, Amaechi made certain pronouncements that led to
the current crisis in the state.
He said: “The Minister of Transportation made several
shocking pronouncements that heralded the root of our
present crisis. He publicly declared that Senator Magnus
Abe and Dr. Dakuku Peterside were both running for
governor, and that he had ordered both of them to stop.
He said Dr. Peterside had stopped and Senator Abe had
not, and that anyone supporting Senator Abe should
leave the party immediately. He went on to name party
leaders sympathetic to Abe and declared that they must
leave the party.

“The Minister declared at that meeting that anyone who
failed to show absolute loyalty to him personally should
receive no benefit or recognition from the party
whatsoever, including contracts and patronage.”
