Amaechi cannot stop my governorship ambition – Magnus Abe
The Senator representing River South East senatorial district in the National Assembly, Senator Magnus Abe says a former governor of the State and the Minister of transport, Rotimi Amaechi cannot stop him from being the governor of Rivers State.
The lawmaker stated this during an interactive session with some youth group in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital on Monday.
According to him, nobody, not even Amaechi can stop him from becoming the governor of the State in 2019. He discloses how he helped Amaechi when the two of them were working for former governor Peter Odili and maintained that he will not stop fighting for his right.
“I was a commissioner in Dr Peter Odili’s government, but I stood behind Amaechi; I argued with Dr Peter Odili on Amaechi’s behalf. Later, when I came to him (Odili) to apologise, he told me that there was no need to apologise and that he respected my decision to stand by my friend (Amaechi).” he noted
“Whoever God has chosen to be the governor of Rivers State will be governor and there is nothing Rt. Hon. Rotimi Amaechi can do about it. When Amaechi fought for his right and took the PDP to court, I did not remember any place where Dr Odili called him a betrayer.
“I am fighting for my right; I want to be governor of this (Rivers) state and nobody can deny me the right to fight for my right. So, I continue to refer to Amaechi that he still remains the leader of my party in the state,” he added
