Magnus Withdraws From Rivers APC Governorship Primary


Senator Magnus Abe has announced his withdrawal from the Rivers State governorship race of All Progressives Congress, APC, contest just before the kick off of the primary.

Abe’s withdrawal from the contest for the governorship ticket was contained in a statement issued by Tony Okocha, the Coordinator of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, BATS,South-South-South campaign group.

Tony Okocha said: “Kindly take this as official statement that we are not participating in an already skewed,biased and prejudiced process in Rivers.

“All our teeming supporters are advised not to dissipate scarce energies in will not pass muster comfortably lounge in houses and home be exceedingly happy,with no interest in the usual charade of APC Rivers”.

At the time filing this report,the APC in Rivers has not reacted to Abe’s withdrawal.

Abe had been at loggerheads with the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi over control of Rivers chapter of APC.

However, he lost the battle for the control of the party when Amaechi’s loyalists were elected into the state executive of the party at the last congresses of the party.

Some supporters of Abe had protested their exclusion from the process of election of delegates who will vote to choose the governorship candidate of the party last week.
