Magnus Abe announced dumping of APC for SDP
SENATOR Magnus Abe has announced his much-anticipated defection from the All Progressives Congress to the Social Democratic Party (SDP).
The action verifies rumours that have circulated for weeks, with Abe, who has been separated from the Rivers APC, claiming in every forum that “I will be on the 2023 ballot.” That I can promise the people of Rivers.”
In a declaration signed and put on his own Facebook wall, Abe declared, “Yes, I am and I have been a member of the Social Democratic Party SDP.”
“I remain irrevocably committed to the ideals that have driven my politics through the years. And we will continue to do everything we can to promote internal democracy in our country’s politics while focusing on the people.”
With this development, the former National Assembly lawmaker for Rivers South East Senatorial District is now likely to take over the Rivers SDP 2023 governorship ticket from current bearer, Pronen Maurice.
