    Former senator representing Rivers South-East district in the National Assembly Magnus Abe has opined that APC lacks the capacity to overcome its challenges.

    Abe in a statement issued by his spokesman, Parry Benson, said the future of Rivers State was more important to the people of the state than the pleasure of any individual.

    He expressed optimism about winning the state election stating that he would not impose himself on the people and end up being a governor without the endorsement of the masses.

    Giving reasons for dumping APC,  Abe said he would not waste his time in the party that has not shown any capacity to be able to overcome any challenges and deliver the electoral expectations of its members.

    He added that he’s looking for a platform that will give him the privilege and the opportunity to fly their flag and present himself, ideas and commitment to the people of Rivers State.

    He said: “What chances do I have in the state? Very bright chances. I always win elections. I don’t lose elections in Rivers State. The contest is always tense because the contest of power is always tense but somebody must win.

    “The important thing is that we should allow the people of Rivers State to decide. I am ready to abide by whatever the people of Rivers State will decide. I am ready to submit myself.

    “I don’t even want to lead people who don’t want me to lead them, because the kind of dreams and visions that I have for my state is such that I need the people to work with me for us to be able to achieve anything.

    “So if they don’t choose me, and I impose myself on them, I know that the plans we are making will not work because I need their support and I need them to work with me.

    “I don’t want to be a leader who is going to where the people are not going. So I don’t even want to be the governor without the endorsement and strong support of the Rivers people.

    “So, I am presenting myself to them; I will tell them the plans we have. I will tell them what I think we can do with the state. I will tell them where I think we can be going and if they are interested in coming with me, then we will go.

    “If they are not interested, it’s not a problem. But, rather than stay and continue to waste the time of Rivers people with APC that has not shown any capacity in Rivers State to be able to overcome any challenges and deliver on the electoral expectations of its members; I have decided to go and do what a politician should do.

    “Which is to look for a platform that will give me the privilege and the opportunity to fly their flag and present myself, my ideas and our commitment to the people of Rivers State, that’s where we are.
    “The future of our State is important to all of us. 2023 elections present us with a unique opportunity to come together as Rivers people.”
