The governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in last year’s general elections, Senator Magnus Abe has left the party and returned to his former party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Abe, who left the APC to contest the 2023 governorship election under the platform of SDP, said he has returned to his former party to work for the progress of the party.

Addressing APC leaders in Port Harcourt on Wednesday, Abe said that he decided to return to his former party to join men of like mind to build a progressive APC in Rivers State just as the Tony Okocha-led caretaker committee of the party in the state said that it’s ready to welcome Abe back to the party.

“We are all very strong characters; there is none of those people such as me, Amaechi, Wike, Okocha that is a walk over but you will also agree that if all of us must come together, there should not be any other force in Rivers State that can stop us. So, I believe that if we can find common ground, which we have all found in the APC, definitely there is a space for everybody. I am a founding member of this party, I am one of those who stake everything to bring APC to life in Rivers State and nobody can deny me that right within the party,” he said.

In the meantime, the APC Caretaker Committee Chairman in the state, Tony Okocha said that APC under his watch will welcome Abe back to the party.

Okocha, who spoke to journalists in Port Harcourt on Wednesday shortly after the delivery of food items to an orphanage home and the home of the elderly, said what makes a party thick is not a single individual but the collective interest of party members.
