Senator Magnus Abe an Aspirant for the Governorship Ticket of the ALL Progressive Congress in Rivers State said his decision to fly contest the ticket of the APC was because of his track record and what he can offer to Rivers People.
Abe who spoke on Friday with Arise Television maintained that President Muhammdau Buahri was endorsed by the Leadership of the All Progressive Congress because he was the sole Aspirant for the Presidential seat on the platform of the APC.
He said the problem in Rivers APC is straightforward and not intractable .
“I am an aspirant. I am interested in flying the party’s flag in the governorship election in Rivers State because I believe that I have something to offer to the people of Rivers State”
On the Endorsement of President Buhari,the Senator Said”The President did not endorse himself. He is the only candidate of the party that purchased form for that office”
Speaking on the purported endorsement of Billionaire Businessman Tinge Cole by the Former Rivers State Governor Abe Said the Minister Ruled out most Aspirants even before the game Started.
“But he is not the only candidate that is interested in the position. In the APC for the President, the only person that has indicated interest to run for the position of the President is President Muhammadu Buhari. And he is an incumbent, and for that reason, members of the party said he should go again. It’s normal all over the world”
“But in a situation where a seat is vacant as far as the party is concerned and then several party members who legitimately have a right to aspire to that position are doing so, then the leadership of the party comes out very strongly against some aspirants, that is bound to lead to issues”
