Rivers APC Crisis: Senator Magnus Abe Joins SDP

Senator Magnus Abe, a former lawmaker representing Rivers South-East senatorial district, has joined the Social Democratic Party (SDP).

Abe, a former member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), had last week announced his non-involvement in the activities of the APC in Rivers State.

In a statement on Friday, Senator Abe’s spokesperson, Parry Benson, said on his Facebook post the former lawmaker has pitched his tent with the SDP.

“Former representative of Rivers South-East Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Senator Magnus Ngei Abe has said that he is a member of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), and very committed to the growth of internal democracy in the politics of Nigeria,” said Benson.

“Yes, I am, and I have been a member of the Social Democratic Party (SDP),” Senator Abe said in the social media post. “I remain irrevocably committed to the ideals that have driven my politics through the years.

“And we will continue to do all we can to improve internal democracy in the politics of our country and focus on the people.”

Senator Abe has, for a long time, been at loggerheads with the immediate past Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, over the leadership of the APC in Rivers State.
