The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State has again raised the alarm concerning the activities and unguarded statements of the APC Senator, representing Rivers South East Senatorial District, Senator Magnus Abe, saying his actions pose a security risk to the state.
The Rivers PDP chairman, Bro. Felix Obuah described the directive by Mr. Abe, that lawmakers elected on the platform of the APC should invade the Assembly without being subjected to the oath of office as demanded by law, as unbecoming of one who claims to be a federal lawmaker.
In a statement by the State Chairman of the PDP, signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Jerry Needam, the party expressed worries that Abe’s recent comments and secret meetings call for concern by every patriotic Rivers man and woman.
The PDP regretted that although Magnus Abe is known for unsavoury and disrespectful attacks on the government and people of Rivers State, he has continued to make statements that are not only provocative and incisive, but seriously threaten the peace and security of the state.
Bro. Obuah also expressed concern that Magnus Abe has openly been making threatening remarks and boastings which, according to him, are very worrisome and likely to destabilise the corporate existence of Rivers State.
“The PDP is worried at the way and manner Magnus Abe is talking and conducting himself as if he is now the Governor and Chief Security Officer of Rivers State,” Obuah noted.
The PDP recalls that some criminal gangs in the state refused to embrace the State Government’s recently concluded amnesty, following attacks by Mr. Abe on the well intended programme.
Bro. Obuah therefore called on security agencies to put Magnus Abe under surveillance as his actions, if not checked, could result to breakdown of law and order in the state.
