The Former Senator Representing Rivers South -East Senatorial District at the national Assembly, Senator Magnus Abe has resigned his membership of APC.
Senator Abe has been on longer head with his Former Boss, The former minister for Transportation, Hon. Chibuuke Rotimi Amaechi Amaechi over who controls the party in Rivers State.
According to a letter addressed to the National Chairman of All Progressive Congress Apc, H. E Alhaji Abdullahi Adamu, said his decision to quit is not unconnected with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s seeming unwillingness to negotiate with him since he expects him to remain in the APC. Hence his resolve to seek alternative platform to actualize Gubernatorial Ambition in Rivers State.
The letter reads;
“H.E Alhaji Abdullahi Adamu,
All Progressives Congress (APC),
“I wish to tender my resignation of membership of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“My decision to quit is not unconnected with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s seeming unwillingness to negotiate with me since he expects me to remain in the APC. Hence my resolve to seek alternative platform to actualize my Gubernatorial Ambition in Rivers State.
“I feel it is time to move on with my Ambition, having served this country as Lawmaker in the Rivers State House of Assembly, SSG of Rivers State, and Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“Let me also use this moment to thank my teeming supporters, and some of those that defected from the APC, for standing by me in all these years, more importantly *H.E Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.*
“In the coming days, I shall tell Nigerians my next political decision.
