Abe: “In politics disagreements are normal.”

* Disagreements in politics are normal. What’s not normal is hatred as we are preaching – Magnus Abe;
* We have decided to support Bola Tinubu for president – Golden Chioma

Those who think they can wish away Senator Magnus Abe’s place in the APC, particularly in forging a strong and formidable alliance which can defeat the PDP, may need to think twice.

Worgu Boms, Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice under the Amaechi administration, gave the hint early in the week at the National School Field, Okrika.

The lawyer turned politician warned that there will be no APC in Rivers State if Amaechi and his henchmen continue with their plan to exclude Senator Abe from the internal politics of the party.

Boms, a sworn opponent of the current Minister of Transportation declared at the rally addressed by Senator Abe in Okrika, “If there is no Magnus Abe  in APC Rivers State, there will be no APC this time around.”

Boms: “Bring somebody who knows our culture and tradition.”

The Ikwerre – born politician who asked to be quoted said Rotimi Amaechi has no right to hoist  his business partner on Rivers people.

“Bring somebody who knows our culture and tradition and not your business partner”, Boms told the Minister.
