Lawmaker representing Rivers South-East Senatorial District, Senator Magnus Abe, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene in the affairs of the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State, alleging that the Minister of Transport, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, is dividing the party.
Abe, while addressing journalists in Abuja on Monday, alleged that Amaechi, by his activities in the APC, was exposing the party to threats by the ruling Peoples Democratic Party in Rivers.
The senator stated that the address became necessary when “it has become clear that my party, the APC, has reached a point where it must take a decision either to live up to the core values of our leader, President Muhammadu Buhari and do the right thing or abandon our values and destroy our soul in other to please a man.”
The lawmaker pointed out that the congresses being held by the APC in Rivers after a court had ordered stoppage of the exercises would eventually be invalidated.
“The President should come in to save the party. There is a court order, an existing order of a court of competent jurisdiction that stopped the congresses in Rivers State. Anybody who claims to be in charge of anything is on a mission of self-delusion. Nobody is in charge of anything because there were no congresses in the state.
