APC Senator, Magnus Abe Would Soon be Removed From Office

By Ikenga Chronicles January 3, 2017

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has posited the recently sworn in All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator Magnus Abe representing Rivers Southeast senatorial district would soon be remove electoral tribunal.

While describing Magnus Abe as a ‘’caretaker senator’’ in a statement signed PDP Rivers State Chairman, Felix Obuah on Tuesday, the party said it has gone to the tribunal to challenge the declaration of Abe as the winner of the December re-run election.

Recall that Abe was declared winner of the national assembly rerun election in Rivers southeast senatorial district in December 2016.

The statement stated that it was “a grave error as available records show that the military, SARS personnel and other security agencies massively rigged the election in the whole of the Rivers southeast senatorial district on December 10, 2016 in favour of Mr Abe”.

“The right of the people of Rivers southeast senatorial district to select the candidate of their choice through the ballot box is sacrosanct and must not be toyed with,” Obuah said.

“The PDP will never rest until this injustice against the people is addressed and the opportunity to have a candidate of their choice given to them as of right.”

“The party has sufficient evidence to show that what happened in the Rivers southeast senatorial district on December 10, 2016 was nothing but a display of military bravado against the PDP and the Ogoni people, orchestrated by the combined forces of Magnus Abe, Barry Mpigi, on one hand, and the men of SARS, police and army on the other hand.

“We are upbeat that the PDP would have the last laugh at the election petitions tribunal. Magnus Abe is only a caretaker senator of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who was smuggled into the senate with the connivance of INEC, SARS, army and the police. His tenure in the senate will be short-lived”.

He called on the people of the senatorial district, especially Olaka Nwogu, “whose mandate has been stolen”, to remain calm and hopeful, adding that anything taken through the backdoor would not stand, as Nwogu would surely
reclaim his mandate.

He said that “Abe’s desperation for power would soon be exposed as evidenced by his recent clandestine activities”.

“Abe had, in the past weeks, been concocting results in his private residence, just to ensure that they tally with figures manufactured for him by INEC,” he said.

“These were some of the measures being taken by the caretaker senator in anticipation of his fraudulent declaration by the INEC being challenged by the PDP.”
