SENATOR MAGNUS ABE OPENS FACTIONAL APC SECRETARIAT IN RIVERS STATE.
All is now set for the grand opening of a parallel Rivers State APC secretariat for a faction of the party loyal to Senator Magnus Abe. The ceremony which is scheduled for today will be attended by Senator Abe, Elder Chidi Wihioka(member representing Ikwerre /Emohua federal constituency), Prince Peter Odike(former Deputy Chairman of the party under Dr Davis Ikanya, who has now declared himself State Chairman), former State Exco members, National Assembly members and party faithfuls loyal to the Rivers South East Constituency Senator.
The party secretariat which is located at waterlines axis of the Port Harcourt – Aba express way was last week destroyed by thugs suspected to be loyal to the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi faction of the party led by Ojukaye Flag-Amachree. Elder Wihioka had accused Ojukaye of leading thugs and SARS operatives to destroy the factional party secretariat.
The party has been factionalised since Senator Abe announced his governorship ambition, which those in the Ameachi faction considered to be premature. The senator has been accused of fraternizing with Governor Wike, who attended his thanksgiving service and the PDP. Senator has maintained it is his right to seek to be elected on the platform of the APC have been a loyal party member who sacrificed his ambition in 2015 to allow Dr Dakuku Peterside clinch the party nomination as wanted by former Governor Rotimi Ameachi.
As Senator Abe’s faction office is opened today, members have described the secretariat of the Ameachi faction as his personal office and not that of the APC, as according to them the court had stopped the congress that produced Ojukaye Flag-Amachree from holding.
