Magnus Abe, Senator representing Rivers South-East District in the National Assembly, has announced that he had ended his 2019 governorship ambition in Rivers State.

Concise News learned that the declaration followed last week’s Supreme Court judgement on the 2019 governorship candidacy for the state All Progressives Congress (APC) in the general elections.

Abe disclosed this on Sunday at the APC stakeholders meeting in Port Harcourt, the state capital.

“With the last week Supreme Court pronouncement on our candidacy matter, I have ended my ambition for 2019 here in Rivers,” the Senator noted.

“This time again, the court upheld the Rivers State High Court judgement of Justice Chiwendu Wogu, which authenticates the leadership of Peter Odike as the current APC state chairman where I contested for the governorship.

“We have come to fight for Representation in government, every human being as members of APC should be treated with respect.

He further said: “We have sacrificed so much, we may not be holding anything now but because of what we have done politics will be better in our country.

“We need to be realistic so that we can move forward. The dream that we have in the state is laid to rest because of the pronouncement of the Supreme Court of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in our suit before it.

The senator reiterated that as a lawyer, the Supreme Court judgment is infallible.

“But God knows the reason, He (God) who knows what we do not know, made His decision,” he added.

“Peter Odike’s factional APC remains the authentic party in the state. The Congress they held still remains voided. No other person or group can parade as APC executives based on the Supreme Court judgement.”
