Rivers APC accuse Abe of plot to destabilize party through court

The Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused Senator Magnus Abe of a purported plot to destabilize the party through court judgment.

APC spokesman in Rivers, Chief Ogbonna Nwuke in a statement yesterday alleged that Abe and some external collaborators has plotted to assign some judges, who had been used in the past to destabilize the party, as vacation judges.

He said that another case similar to the one before Justice Ben Whyte, which was seeking to secure an injunction against the APC, had been filed.

He said: “As we speak, we have come upon credible information that allies of Governor Nyesom Wike and Senator Magnus Abe have lined up new cases that are being filed by different persons this time.

“We have also learnt that some members of a judicial ring that has been used repeatedly in the past to deliver objectionable decisions are to be used as vacation judges.

“The plan is to secure injunctions by any means possible; injunctions intended to halt the APC, which by the grace of God, and the leadership of Rt. Hon Rotimi Amaechi, Minister of Transportation, is transforming into the mainstream party of the Rivers people.

“We have decided to bring the evil plots that are being hatched to the notice of the public. We urge Rivers people to prevail on the governor to go slow on his agenda to destabilize democratic structures, including his own political platform, using Rivers money to achieve such Machiavellian objectives.

“We are watching and this time, we will not keep quiet. We will speak! We are already monitoring their every move. We know who the collaborators are”.

Nwuke said the party would disclose the identities of the characters behind the plot and employ legitimate means to ensure the stability, cohesion, progress, orderliness and unity of the party in line with the provisions of the law.

He said the party was determined to expose the collaboration of the Rivers State Government with certain persons in the judiciary and to promote good governance anchored on public accountability, transparency, decency and the prudent use of resources belonging to Rivers people.

Abe could not be reached for comments, as his phone was switched off. (The Nation)
