Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Minister of Transportation in Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi asked Senator Magnus Abe to stop calling him his leader.
He said frequent reference to him by Magnus Abe as his “leader” is devious and deceptive.
Rotimi Amaechi accused Senator Abe and his followers of privately and publicly insulting casting aspersions,
“On me, my wife and members of my family, daily? Is that how a follower treats his leader?
“It’s cheap and indeed shameful political sophistry for Abe to stand in the APC secretariat and deceitfully say I am his Leader, while all he has done, both privately and publicly in recent times is to undermine me, the APC and desecrate the APC in Rivers State.
“As a matter of fact, it is indeed very doubtful if Senator Abe is still in the APC. He mouths APC but his actions belie his words and clearly tell a different story.
“I am not Magnus Abe’s leader. Abe has long left me and the political family that is largely responsible for his rise and fame.
“A man who wakes up, create an imaginary parallel party executive and went ahead to open an office for the non-existent parallel executive, that has no base and foundation, cannot be said to be committed, in anyway, to the party. As a matter of fact, his actions are obviously targeted at weakening and destroying the party.
“Such a hypocritical, devious character cannot be my follower. I am not his leader,” Amaechi said.
