Senator Magnus Abe, has said that Govenor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State warned him over the current antagonism he is facing from the Minister of Transport, Chibuike Amaechi-led All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state. Senator Abe said this while reacting to recent accusations by Senator Andrew Uchendu, where he (Abe) was taunted as having inordinate ambition, gaining more than he contributed to Amaechi’s political dynasty and not supporting the Transport Minister’s governorship bid back in 2007
Speaking yesterday in Port Harcourt over the Minister’s alleged rejection of his 2019 governorship ambition in preference for Tonye Cole under the party, Abe said it was now clear, from Uchendu’s remarks, “That the decision to stop me (Abe) was taken long ago. “That is exactly what Governor Wike warned me against when he came to my house prior to his decision to leave the group. What is happening in Rivers State APC has nothing to do with building the party, it is all about stopping Abe.”
On the contribution to Amaechi’s political dynasty, Abe said: “There is always this attempt to play down Wike’s contribution to our success in the court. “Wike was pivotal to what happened in the court, just as I was to how we got the nomination.
