The lingering crisis rocking the Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) continued yesterday as the former lawmaker representing Rivers South-East Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Magnus Abe, said the party cannot function in Rivers State without people like him and his supporters.
Abe, who addressed the APC stakeholders at his country home in Bera community in Gokana Local Government Area of Rivers State, boasted that nobody can wish him away in the party.
“What I came here to do today is to say thank you to my people. When they said they wanted to see me, I must come home. I immediately fixed today to come so that they will see me and I talk to them. There is nobody in Nigeria; there is nobody in Rivers State who will say there is no APC in Gokana.
“You can also see that because of the love my people have shown; because of the respect you people have given to me, because of the affection that you have for me, it is now clear to the whole of Nigeria, to the whole of Rivers State, that it will be impossible, I repeat the word, impossible to the politics of APC in Rivers State without you and I.
