Okocha welcomes Prime Minister Abe's return to APC

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State has welcomed the departure of Senator Magnus Abe from the Social Democratic Party (SDP).

Prime Minister Abe will run for Rivers State governorship in the 2023 general election after failing to secure the APC ticket and disagreements with former Rivers State governor and former Minister of Transport Rotimi Amaechi. He defected to the SDP for this reason.

Abe, who represented Rivers South East Senatorial District, later emerged as the SDP's gubernatorial candidate in the 2023 elections.

Reacting to news of the former party stalwart’s return, the Rivers State APC Interim Chairman, Tony Okocha, said: we work with him. I have said it before, and I will repeat it again and again, that a party is not driven by any one individual. So many people. In other words, in politics, the more the merrier.

“I admit that Magnus was part of the establishment of APC in Rivers State, I can say that without fear of contradiction. But whatever happened, we all know. was unilaterally against the strong-armed government and the APC leadership, the incompetent leadership of the APC.

“But I didn't think it was the right thing to leave. So I stayed. But he left probably because he wanted to pursue the ambitions that he was trying to pursue under the Social Democratic Party. I don't think one head is bigger than ten in today's politics. I don't think so.”
