I don’t want to fight Tinubu – Abe on withdrawing case against Wike

Senator Magnus Ngei Abe, the Social Democratic Party’s (SDP) candidate for governor of Rivers State, has provided an explanation for his decision to withdraw his lawsuit contesting the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) victory in the state.

Senator Magnus Ngei Abe, the Social Democratic Party’s (SDP) candidate for governor of Rivers State, has provided an explanation for his decision to withdraw his lawsuit contesting the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) victory in the state.

Siminalayi Fubara, the PDP candidate backed by Governor Nyesom Wike, won the state’s governorship election, but Abe and his party challenged it in front of the Rivers State Governorship Election Tribunal.

 

Abe, who was charged with being used by Governor Wike to demolish the Rivers All Progressives Congress (APC), and his party, however, declared last week that they had withdrew the case from the tribunal.

 

Abe claimed in a statement issued through his spokesperson Parry Saroh Benson that the case was dropped because he didn’t want to face off against President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu directly.

Because Wike and the G-5 governors have already allied with Tinubu, according to Abe, he will no longer be fighting the Rivers State governor.
 

According to him: “The dynamics of the politics have changed. Wike and the G-5 now have an alliance with the APC at the national level and that alliance affects the dynamics of what is happening in the state.

“Now, we looked at it that if we continue our battle in the court at this point, we will end up in direct confrontation with the President-elect, who has clearly by his body language and the alliance between the APC and the G-5, taken a clear position as far as the issue is concerned.

“If we continue with this battle, we will be continuing on our own and we will not be able to get any institutional support.”
