“My home is in the APC” – Senator Magnus Abe reconciles with Wike, returns to ruling party

Senator Magnus Abe has confirmed that he has resolved his differences with the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and former Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike. 

Abe recently attended the Thanksgiving event organised by Chief Tony Okocha, the chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Caretaker Committee in Rivers.

Abe, who previously left the APC to run for governorship under the Social Democratic Party (SDP) but later returned to the APC after losing the election, expressed his commitment to ending the rift within the party. 

In a post on his verified Facebook page, Abe wrote: “Be yourself and let others be themselves. I believe that the APC in Rivers State will benefit from the process of peaceful reunification, and reintegration.

“I have made peace with the Hon Minister of the FCT, and former Governor of Rivers state. I accompanied him to Chief Tony Okocha’s Thanksgiving to show that my commitment to end the rifts in our party is total.

“I want to publicly thank the minister, he could have behaved like other politicians – made peace with me, and still encouraged me, Tony and others to continue fighting (You bring Magnus in the morning through one door, then bring Tony in the evening through the other door). But his style is direct, truthful, and sincere, and it will create a united team.

“The disagreements within is over and done for good, because the oxygen for conflict has been extinguishedIt may take a little while but the result is that all those with us, who sincerely wish us well will go with us and tow the path of unity because we all know that it is the right way to go.

“Let me also thank Chief Okocha, of course, he knew I was comingand he received me well. My home is in the APC. Let us come together. Everyone will benefit from us working together.

“When it is time we will speak. For now, make I dey my dey. Let us focus on the economy. God bless u all.”
