The senator representing Rivers South-East senatorial

district in the National Assembly, Magnus Abe, has called

on the Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi, and

his supporters in the state to stop abusing President

Muhammadu Buhari over the predicament of the All

Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

Abe said that Nigerians have, of course, heard and

ignored stories of the abuses rained on the president on a

daily basis by those, who are supposed to be his

supporters and promoters in Rivers State.

Abe, in a statement issued in Port Harcourt by his

spokesperson, Parry Benson, recalled that during the

party’s presidential campaign in Port Harcourt, not a kind

word was said about the President Buhari for his

numerous achievements in the state.

Senator Abe, who was reacting to comments credited to

the Director-General of the Amaechi/Cole Campaign

Organisation, Chidi Lloyd, on a live television programme

monitored in Port Harcourt, said such habit of blaming

everybody for the party’s woes must stop.

The statement reads: “I was visibly shocked when Hon.

Chidi Lloyd, the Director-General of the Amaechi/Cole

campaign went on Channels Television to openly abuse

the president and blamed him for the electoral challenges

facing the APC in Rivers State.

“This is most unfortunate. The habit of blaming everyone

else for our woes must stop immediately. We had a

needless and senseless power tussle in the party even

when everyone agreed that the minister was the leader,

yet that was Senator Abe’s fault, (because Senator Abe

has a gubernatorial ambition as if there is any member of

a political party in Nigeria without an ambition).

“APC members in Rivers State went to court for a minor

issue that could have been resolved internally in ten

minutes; they were accused of being sponsored by

Governor Wike.

“The APC leadership went to physically attack the courts

and openly disobeyed court orders and the courts

responded by axing the candidates for being products of

that disobedience. The judges were accused of being PDP

and working for Wike.

“Now, you have gone into an election for which you are

clearly ill-prepared, and yet the president gave you

everything. Rivers APC had NDDC, Railway, NPA, Shippers

Council; Ministry of Transportation, Police, Army, Air

Force, DSS and yet, you could not win because the INEC

REC is PDP. INEC Chairman is PDP, haba!

“Now, we are blaming the president. Is the president also

working with Wike? If we had taken time to remind Rivers

people of the uncommon love that Buhari has shown to

Rivers people in the Ogoni cleanup, the Bodo-Bonny Road,

approval for new higher institutions in Rivers State,

appointments of our sons and daughters into positions of

trust and so on.”

The senator further said: “We would have made more

sense to Rivers people than the failed campaign for

personal supremacy by the leader of the party in the state.

The president even went as far as risking his reputation

and integrity to support the APC in Rivers State more than

any other state in Nigeria.

“In playing our usual blame game, let us leave President

Buhari out of it and focus on the real issues facing the

party in Rivers State,” Abe stated.
