Senator Magnus Abe Speaks On Dumping APC
Senator Magnus Abe
Abe denied some online reports of his defection in a chat with a Punch correspondent.
The APC factions led by Abe and Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, have been in a supremacy battle over the Rivers-East senatorial ticket of the party.
The Abe-led faction had held an indirect primary that fielded the lawmaker as candidate while the Amaechi-led faction had conducted a direct primary that produced Tonye Cole as candidate.
The national leadership of the party had recognised Cole.
