Rivers APC Is In Tatters –Abe
Former Senator of Rivers South East District , Senator Magnus Abe, said the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State is in tatters, and members need to change their attitude in order to save the party.
Abe who spoke in Port Harcourt, Rivers State capital explained that with the crisis rocking the party, members cannot continue to do the same thing that plunge them into the crunch and be deluded that they were making progress.
According to him, “It is clear that we cannot continue to do the same thing that brought us to where we are and expect that we are making progress. As far as the All Progressives Congress is concerned, we need to live up to our ideals because that is what the Nigerian people expect of us. If we make that effort it would yield benefits and fruits all across the country, including Rivers State”.
He noted that the disunity currently going on in the party at the State and the National levels is a disservice to Rivers people and not good for democracy.
Abe said,”the fact that the main opposition party in the State is merely in tatters, all reasonable people understand that that is not good for democracy. In a democracy you must have viable alternatives, if not it is not a democracy. Being the way we are now, we are doing Rivers people a disservice. We need to change our behavior, re-tweak our priorities and try and do things differently in the interest of the State.”
