Wike, Abe Reconciliation Not In Rivers Interest – APC Chieftain


A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze has described the reconciliation between Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and Sen. Magnus Abe, the governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) as a move that is against the interest of Rivers State.

Eze in a statement described the reconciliation as ‘a media distraction carefully schemed to curry public attention in a bid to excite political interest in their own divide.’

He said it is difficult to fathom how Wike, currently serving as a minister in the APC-led government will be jostling for the leadership of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, while Abe, who recently returned to the APC after his failed governorship campaign with SDP will reconcile.

Eze alleged that the duo are conspirators “in the battle-royal for the soul of Rivers State’, adding that there was never a time they had issues because Abe had always worked for Wike.

Eze said:”…the purported claim of reconciliation by the former Rivers Southeast Senator is a blatant falsehood deployed to sway the public and should be thrashed as there was never a time they severed from each other but have always worked symbiotically to crumble dissenting voices from the Rivers APC.

Eze claimed that Abe played the role of a “spoiler against the Rivers APC in 2015 which led to the ultimate scuttling of the party’s chances at the polls.”

He added:”Again, at the wake of the 2019 elections, Nigerians saw Senator Abe deploying some sort of sophisticated sleight against the APC and this time, the party could not field any candidate for the elections of that year. These, Abe did, with the surreptitious motive to allow Wike a free ride to a second term.

Eze also said: “Abe, by experience and training and a lawyer should be one of those on the fair side insisting that those 27 lawmakers who defected have in all honesty, lost their seats, instead he chose to stoop so low in order to curry federal appointment.”
