You Are A Security Risk, PDP Tells Abe
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State has again raised alarm concerning the activities and unguarded statements of the APC Senator, representing Rivers South East Senatorial District, Senator Magnus Abe, saying his actions pose a security risk to the state.
The Rivers PDP chairman, Bro Obuah described the directive by Mr Abe, that lawmakers elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, should invade the Assembly without being subjected to the oath of office as demanded by law, as unbecoming of one who claims to be a federal lawmaker.
In a statement by the State Chairman of the PDP, Bro. Felix Obuah and signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Jerry Needam, the party expressed worries that Abe’s recent comments and secret meetings call for concern by every patriotic Rivers man and woman.
The PDP regretted that although Magnus Abe is known for unsavory and disrespectful attacks on the government and people of Rivers State, he has continued to make statements which are not only provocative and incisive, but seriously threaten the peace and security of the State.
Bro. Obuah also expressed concern that Magnus Abe has openly been making threatening remarks and boastings which, according to him, are very worrisome and likely to destabilize the corporate existence of the people of the State.
“The PDP is worried at the way and manner Magnus Abe is talking and conducting himself as if he is now the Governor and Chief Security Officer of Rivers State,” Bro. Obuah noted.
The PDP recalls that some criminal gangs in the state refused to embrace the State Government’s recently concluded amnesty, following attacks by Mr. Abe on the well intended programme.
Bro. Obuah therefore called on security agencies to put Magnus Abe under surveillance as his actions, if not checked, could result in breakdown of law and order in the state.
