    Senator Abe Debunks Viral Letter Of Withdrawal From APC


    Jul 20, 2022

    A viral letter of withdrawal from the All Progressives Congres (APC) credited to Senator Magnus Ngei Abe has been refuted by the politician.

    Naija News understands a letter was in circulation on Tuesday containing information about the withdrawal of the former Senator representing Rivers South-East senatorial district in the National Assembly from APC.

    The letter purportedly written by Abe and addressed to the APC national chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu read: “I wish to tender my resignation of membership of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

    “My decision to quit is not unconnected with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s seeming unwillingness to negotiate with me since he expects me to remain in the APC. Hence my resolve to seek an alternative platform to actualize my Gubernatorial Ambition in Rivers State.

    “I feel it is time to move on with my Ambition, having served this country as a Lawmaker in the Rivers State House of Assembly, SSG of Rivers State, and Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

    “Let me also use this moment to thank my teeming supporters, and some of those that defected from the APC, for standing by me in all these years, more importantly, H.E Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

    “In the coming days, I shall tell Nigerians my next political decision. Thank you.”

    Senator Abe, however, while speaking on a live programme on Arise News Television on Wednesday morning, admitted that he has dumped the Rivers State chapter of the APC but that the resignation letter in circulation was not from him.

    Abe reiterated his unwavering support for the ambition of the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu.

    The politician said he has no issues with the former Lagos State governor. He said: “I have since left APC in Rivers State but the letter circulating round is not from me. I am still with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and has no issue with him whatsoever.

    “I am strongly in support of Asiwaju but I am not part of APC in Rivers State and the charade going on there.”
