Senator Magnus Abe, the former senator representing Rivers South-East senatorial district, said that he is returning to his former party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, to support President Bola Tinubu’s developmental agenda.

Abe, who was the governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party, SDP, in the 2023 general elections, said earlier in an interview that he was on his way back to the ruling party.

During a stakeholder meeting held in Port Harcourt with some members of SDP on Wednesday, Abe said he has officially joined APC.

He said that his return to APC would enable him to work together with other well-meaning Nigerians to support the administration of President Tinubu and to enable Rivers people to be part of the development at the centre.

Abe stated that the responsibility of engendering peace in the party is that all members of the party, regardless of their positions, should be ready to work for the progress of the party.

He said that the Chairman of the Caretaker Committee of the party, Mr Tony Okocha, had been a member of his team when he was in APC.


According to Abe: “We are not joining the party because of an individual, but they are in the party as the founding members of the party and grassroots supporters of President Tinubu. We believe that it is proper that we are in the party supporting President Tinubu’s developmental agenda.

“Everybody in the party should have learnt one or two lessons as to how we can make the party work. We are coming in with open-mindedness and are ready to work with everybody within the party. We believe that everybody with a sincere interest in the progress of the party should be ready to join.”
