Senator Magnus Abe,the lawmaker representing Rivers South-East Senatorial District has said that the recent defection of some lawmakers and a state governor from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will not mar President Muhammadu Buhari’s reelection in 2019.
The Senator, who is a governorship aspirant under the auspices of the APC recently in Port Harcourt claimed that nobody can change the fact that the party still has majority of members in the upper and lower chamber of the National Assembly in spite of the recent defections.
“The majority in the Senate is APC and the majority in the House of Representative is APC, nobody can change that, in fact, some of those who even defected are returning. Well the truth of the matter is that a lot of things were not done properly in the party”
“A lot of things that started as small problems that could have been solved by the party very easily at the time they started were ignored. Those small small fires that could have been put out by a spoon of water have now become raging infernos”
