Senator Abe reacts to Supreme Court decision on Rivers APC

By - - [Politics ]

The Senator representing Rivers Southeast District in the National Assembly, Magnus Ngei Abe, has reacted to the judgment of the Supreme Court, which struck out his appeals on the propriety of direct primary elections conducted by the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers state.


Abe and other candidates of the Rivers APC had prayed the apex court to make a pronouncement on the primaries for the nomination of party’s candidates for the 2019 general election.

The Senator, in a statement issued by his spokesman, Parry Benson, said that “while we prayed for a more positive outcome, we accept the final position of the Supreme Court in good faith”.


Abe expressed his profound gratitude to the judiciary for offering the aggrieved members of the APC in Rivers State the platform and opportunity to challenge the injustice and impunity by the leadership of the APC in the state.

He said it was gratifying to note that through the judiciary, impunity and injustice within the party could be challenged, describing it as democracy at work.

“We are grateful to the judiciary for the opportunity offered myself and other law-abiding members of the APC to challenge the injustice and fraud perpetrated by the leadership of the party in Rivers State.


“We commend all those who fought for the course of justice through thick and thin, in the face of threats, intimidation, and inducement.

“Our joy knows no bounds because we made our case without arming youths, plotting violence or assassinating anyone’s character.

“We were able to hold on to our quest for justice without spilling blood. We were attacked severally and our offices vandalised by violent and vengeful politicians within the APC, in the course of our peaceful agitation, yet we never responded with violence. I am grateful to you all.”



He said he would remain a committed member of APC, and called on all genuine members of the party to remain resolute in their commitment to enthrone internal democracy in the APC and bring real change to Nigeria.

He appealed to all those who left the party in the state due to provocation, and disrespect by the leadership to return.
