The People’s Democratic Party in Rivers state, has urged the governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party, Sen. Magnus Abe to congratulate Governor-elect Sim Fubara and stop crying foul.
Chief, Ogbonna Nwuke, Director of Publicity and Communications of the party’s campaign organisation made this known in a statement on Tuesday.
According to him, Abe has been trying to be a show boy, whose pride has been hurt by the people, adding that the SDP candidate was “disowned in field because governance is not a matter of show boyship.”
He also said Abe had been crowing on television, describing him as a spent force.
His statement reads,
Abe is simply trying to be a show boy, whose pride has been hurt by the people. Our dear senator was disowned in field because governance is not a matter of show boyship.
Besides running to the media all the time to grandstand, Senator Abe is a spent political force in Rivers State. He is like the proverbial tortoise, which went to the wrestling ground and scattered everything in sight so it could be said a titanic fight took place.
Abe knows the truth that he is not admitting. Even if elections are to be held 100 times in Rivers State, Abe will lose 100 times against the PDP.
We do not intend to hold brief either for law enforcement agents or the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), but our take is, Abe is fabricating so many tactless lies, which cannot be substantiated. How many lies can a man tell himself?
The senator broke out of the APC. In doing so, he left with votes that could have gone to the APC. Dumo Lulu Briggs also left the APC.
Like Abe, he (Dumo) moved with part of the support base of the APC to Accord. Tonye Cole, faced with a stream of defections.
