(By Chris K.Amadi)-Senator Magnus Abe representing Rivers South East at the National Assembly has declared that he supported several people in politics and that he also supported Rotimi Amaechi to become Governor and even as a governor.He said that neither the future of the All Progressive Congress ,APC, nor the fate of its members can be determined by an individual.
Abe who spoke at a Christmas Carol in Port Harcourt on Sunday, added that those who created crisis in the APC in Rivers State should admit their fault and apologize in order for the party to move forward, jus as he described Christmas as a very special time of the year when people across the world celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
While expressing sadness over the current logjam the party in the state is, the Senator stressed the need for people to be able to take responsibility for their actions; saying “There is no point doing something wrong that had totally destroyed the fabric of unity, the bonds of friendship, the mutual respect, the ability to work together that existed in the All Progressives Congress.
“So when you have failed in your responsibility as a leader to put people together, to improve their bonds of friendship, what you should do, is to admit that you have not done well and then have the humility to turn around and ask for help, there are people who can help you.
“To continue to malign people, to raise up enemies against others cannot help us where we are now but I have good news for all of you,” he stated.
“Without Christ, our sense of right and wrong will be totally different from what it is today. So I want to use this opportunity to wish all of you and wish the entire people of Rivers State and indeed Nigeria a very Merry Christmas and very happy and prosperous 2019.
“I believe this party will be strong. I believe that our people are committed. I believe that they know exactly what they will like to have and I believe that in the fullness of time as we progress in what we are doing and it becomes clear who the real candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State.
Senator Abe said he supported several people in politics, saying, “Everybody knows that I supported Rotimi Amaechi to become Governor and even as a governor. When he was trying to be governor, I was a supporter. I did not betray him as a supporter.
“How can I betray myself when I want to become governor? Does that make sense? That is why when people hire hacks and you do not reason with them, they cannot even execute the assignment that they have been given, no matter how much that you give to them.
“As Rivers people, we have clear options before us, whether to continue on a path that is clearly leading us to no way or to chart a new course, independent of those who will not like to see us make a progress. To chart a path that will offer every Rivers man and woman an opportunity to upgrade.
“The whole essence of politics is that all of us should be able to upgrade. I believe that with the resources available to this State with committed principled leadership that partner the people that understand that power cannot belong to one person alone.
“We will be able to chart a direction for this State that will offer every Rivers man and woman an opportunity to both progress in their own lives in an atmosphere that is secure, progressive and by the grace of God conducive to your own personal development,” he stated.
