Why is PDP obsessed with Senator Magnus Abe? – APC

The Rivers State chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, said the party now has reason to worry why the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) and the Governor of Rivers State, Chief Nyesom Wike are obsessed and stalking Senator Magnus Ngei Abe.

The APC in a statement signed by Senibo Chris Fineboned said, “It is now public knowledge that not many persons know that the PDP senatorial candidate for Rivers South-East is Hon. Olaka Wogu because Gov. Wike speaks, campaigns and acts as if he is on the ballot against Senator Abe of the APC. At a point, the governor asked that Senator Magnus Abe must be stopped. Ever since, we have been wondering why the governor would issue what amounts to a fatwa against Senator Abe.”

Continuing, the APC said, “but more seriously, intelligence report that the APC is in possession of indicate that the top echelon of the PDP could be planning an assassination of Senator Abe as a means of stopping him. While the party is still assessing and scrutinizing this report, the PDP State Chairman, Bro Felix Obuah, in a statement signed by his media aide, Jerry Needam,and released to the media on Sunday accused Senator Magnus Abe of protecting himself with soldiers and counter-terrorism police personnel.”

The APC asked a number of questions following what the party described as “recent display of unbridled obsession with Senator Abe’s personal security details.” Have Felix Obuah and the PDP gone into selective amnesia so soon by not recalling that, not long ago, Nyesom Wike as Minister of State for Education strutted around the State with more soldiers and Special Forces personnel than the then governor, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi? Could the scrutiny of Senator Abe’s personal protection security details and arrangements be part of a grand plot to assassinate him as being rumoured since he cannot be stopped as directed by the governor? Assuming without conceding that Senator Abe has the security personnel PDP stated, what is the real or imaginary reasons behind such a meticulous and painstaking study of an individual’s personal security architecture by Felix Obuah and the PDP?

“In view of the yet-to-be-resolved questions surrounding the gruesome killing of Chief Christopher Adube and the almost wiping out of his entire household, and other killings and beheadings in ONELGA, the APC calls on the Inspector-General of Police, Director-General, DSS, other relevant security agencies and Nigerians in general to hold the Rivers State PDP especially its Chairman, Bro Felix Obuah responsible for any untoward security breach or harm that is done to the person of Senator Magnus Abe now or in the nearest future. We are making this call with every seriousness we can muster”, the statement concluded.
