PORT HARCOURT: The Senator representing Rivers South-East Senatorial District at the National Assembly and a governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Sen. Magnus Abe, has insisted that congresses of the party did not hold in the state.
Abe, also said that no new executives of the party in the state have been elected.
He however insisted that Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya remains the Chairman of the APC in the state as there were no congresses.
The senator spoke at a brief get-together to mark his 53rd birthday at his liaison office, Freedom House in Port Harcourt.
Earlier, Abe had, in company of his wife, Mrs. Bariyaah Abe, visited the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul, Ogale in Eleme Local Government Area of the state, the Port Harcourt Children’s Home, Borokiri, the home of the Elderly at Harbour Road and the Compassionate Home, Nkpogu, Port Harcourt.
Speaking, Abe urged his supporters to remain calm and stop insulting leaders and officers of the party, noting that the wrangle in the party would soon be quelled.
“Let me say clearly for the world to hear. There was no APC congress in Rivers State. And we will not accept it. Human beings can do what they want but God will do what he will.
“Let me appeal to all, my supporters, and my opponents to stop attacking Chief Davies Ibiamu Ikanya on social media. He is still the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State. He has not resigned, and there has not been any Congress to remove him.
“When I spoke last time, I said that we have enemies within the party. Some of them are there and some of them are here. Let me tell those who are there to stop the attacks. And to those here, let’s stop creating enemies for the party because if we create enemies, no one will vote for the APC.”
