Former Rivers senator, Magnus Abe has dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC) to a yet-to-named political party.
Abe, who represented Rivers South-East district in the upper chamber of the national assembly said his decision to quit the ruling party is not unconnected with the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s seeming unwillingness to negotiate with him since he expects him (Abe) to remain in the APC, hence his resolve to seek alternative platform to actualize his Gubernatorial Ambition in Rivers State.
In a letter of resignation addressed to the APC National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu and obtained by GRASSROOT REPORTERS, the political rival of former Minister, Rotimi Amaechi thanked his supporters for standing by him.
The letter reads:
I wish to tender my resignation of membership of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
My decision to quit is not unconnected with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s seeming unwillingness to negotiate with me since he expects me to remain in the APC. Hence my resolve to seek alternative platform to actualize my Gubernatorial Ambition in Rivers State.
I feel it is time to move on with my Ambition, having served this country as Lawmaker in the Rivers State House of Assembly, SSG of Rivers State, and Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Let me also use this moment to thank my teeming supporters, and some of those that defected from the APC, for standing by me in all these years, more importantly *H.E Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.*
In the coming days, I shall tell Nigerians my next political decision.
