Rivers APC won’t dump Buhari- Sen Abe
Sen. Magnus Abe who representing Rivers South in the National Assembly, on Thursday, assured that the Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), would not dump President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking in Abuja when leaders of various Legislative Assemblies in Rivers State visited him, Senator Abe also called on warring parties in Rivers APC to embrace peace.
The federal lawmaker also called on the National Judicial Commission (NJC) to intervene in the prolonged local government case, currently pending in court.
He said: “Port Harcourt is so unsafe so people are coming to Abuja. Let us face the issue. I am not shying away from anything. Whatever I have set out to do, I will do it. The case of local government issue in Rivers State has been pending in the court for almost two years. I urge the judiciary to hurry up.
“The last time they were to sit, the Rivers State Government said they were renovating the courts. They went and removed the roof. This was a deliberate attempt to frustrate the case. I am urging the NJC to intervene the same way they did with judges facing trial.
“We have over fifteen pending cases in Abuja. We are praying that the matters will be resolved in our favour. For me, the whole issue bedeviling APC in Rivers State is not a big deal. We have to remember that we are members of the party. Any disagreement can be resolved in-house. Rivers APC is for Buhari and the direction of the Federal Government is where we will go.
“Today, we cannot do business in Rivers State. The growth that should stimulate prosperity is dropping. There is insecurity in Rivers State and this trend is worrisome.”
