Embattled senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Senator Magnus Abe, along with the Rivers State chairman of the party and other party officials, on Tuesday, July 19, 2016 held a private meeting, with the INEC chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu in Abuja.
The meeting, which ended at about 9:30pm, was called to fine tune plans on how to substitute INEC Staff with APC card carrying members as election officers and work on the possibility of postponing the scheduled July 30, supplementary rerun elections in Rivers State.
This would not be the first time Senator Magnus Abe would embark on desperate efforts to truncate democracy in Rivers State and thereby undermine the will of Rivers people.
During the last rerun elections Magnus Abe was personally responsible for the use of soldiers to invade communities who killed his own kinsmen.
This is supposed to be an election. This is supposed to be the expression of the will of the people. This election has been continuously postponed and declared inconclusive just because Magnus has not been elected. A man that is unpopular cannot be foisted on his constituents. It would never happen!
