Rivers APC: Chieftain Eze Warns Party against Compensating Abe’s Rebellion with Senatorial Ticket

Published

Renominated

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has been warned against compensating Senator Magnus Abe’s alleged rebellion against the party in Rivers state with a Senatorial ticket.

A chieftain of the APC in Rivers state, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, who gave the warning in a statement he issued and circulated in Port Harcourt on Wednesday, charged the National Secretariat of the party, as well as the State Chapter not to send a wrong signal to members of the party by embarking on any act that will destroy the principles on which the party was set up.

According to him, compensating the Senator with the party’s ticket and denying the legitimate aspiration of a loyal party leader like Ambassador Oji Ngofa, will not only be suicidal but sending the message that rebelling against the party’s authority will ultimately be compensated with juicy rewards, it would also escalate the crisis within the party.

Eze, who revealed that Senator Abe, an erstwhile ally of his, had attempted to recruit him into his project of tearing down the influence of the Minister of Transportation and former Governor of the State, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, a lure he reportedly rejected, noted that further indulging the senator would only help in actualising the plans of sabotaging the Rivers APC, which he had hatched with the State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, whom he identified as an arch-enemy of the party.

“Senator Magnus Abe is not only a personal friend, but a brother very dear to my heart and family. I have nothing against any aspiration that he  (Abe) intends to pursue, but I will not support any of his acts that will be detrimental to the collective aspiration of APC in Rivers State.

“It is an irrevocable fact that Abe approached me to join him in his futile act and movement to bring down the political family of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and contrary to my advice as his good friend not to venture into such an ungodly act that may nail his political career, he went ahead and today he has lost all his political relevance in the politics of Rivers state.

“I can’t be a party to any act that will rubbish Amaechi who has sacrificed his blood and resources to ensure that APC is what it is today, no matter the level of frustration or temptation. Instead, I will prefer to retire from politics than indulge in any act that will position me as a traitor, ingrate, an inhuman and heartless fellow.

“I must confess that I am sad that Senator Abe could be in the position that he has found himself just because he wants to rebel against a fellow whose inputs in his political life can’t be overemphasized.

“During the 2015 general elections,  Abe and his cohorts teamed up to sabotage the fortunes of the party with hopes that he will reap out of it by 2019 and when he found out that it would not be possible he teamed up with Governor Wike of Rivers state to create the crisis that has become the lot of APC in the  State.

“On the other hand, Ambassador Oji Ngofa has proved himself not only as a party loyalist, but one who is ready to offer his life for the greatness of the party in the Niger Delta region. He was among the very few that stood, fought and defeated Governor Wike in all his political games and to sacrifice such a fellow in order to make Abe and Wike happy will not only be termed wickedness, but also a demonstration of ungratefulness.

“Well, it is not a taboo to be ambitious but any ambition that will bring your leader down and harm the platform that brought you to prominence is not only calamitous, unfortunate but a bad one. I am sad that Abe have lost it and should be allowed to show serious remorse for all his anti party activities before he can be trusted with any other strategic position in the party,  Eze counselled

“Finally, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi would have been the greatest casualty had Jonathan won in 2015 as a sitting governor, he put his entire political life at stake by joining the Buhari team and today Senator Magnus Abe and his Team have so disrespected, disparaged, despised him and constituted himself as a clog in APC’s wheel of progress in Rivers and for anybody thinking of entrusting such a fellow with an APC ticket is not being fair and just to the party and her members, Eze said.

Wonders will never cease or how do you explain a church canceling the wedding of its members for the most unrealistic reason.

According to a report, Bolingo Israel and Okpokpolom Jemima members of Deeper Life Church allegedly got his wedding suspended for eating from the same plate.

The incident said to have happened a week before the couple’s wedding has been generating reaction on social media.

A Twitter user identified as @realoladele shared details of the incident. According to him, the couple were set to wed on Saturday, June 8 and held their traditional wedding on Friday, June 7.

According to him, during the course of the traditional wedding, they got a text saying that their wedding set to hold the next day had been suspended

Furthermore, the couple was placed on ‘discipline’ by the pastor. The incident is said to have occurred at Deeper Life Church in Bayelsa and all the arrangements made by the couple for the wedding day got wasted.

Report has it that the wedding was canceled by the pastor because the couple played the role of man and wife by eating from the same plate despite the fact that they were yet to be married.

When the family of the couple reached out to the pastor, he refused on the basis that the couple ate from the same plate a week before they were joined in holy matrimony and for that reason have to be punished.

Reacting to the development, the church explained that contrary to reports, the couple had actually engaged in immoral acts after sleeping in the same bed and it amounted to sin. The church further explained that after feeling guilty and reporting themselves to their respective pastors, the couple was placed on disciplinary action by the state overseer.

After the church felt they had repented, the wedding was slated to hold again but was eventually suspended the second time after they discovered the couple had engaged in ‘acts contrary to the laid down procedure by the marriage committee of the church’. Concluding the statement, the church explained that it stands for holiness and members have been admonished to abstain from evil. The couple was also described to have behaved unseemingly and were in a haste to enjoy the benefits of married couples.

Read the statement below:

“The church has a Marriage Committee that supervises marriage right from knowing the will of God, to obtaining parents’ consent, marriage registration to church wedding. When the intending couples were told to go to Brass Region in Bayelsa state to obtain the man’s parents’ consent, they spent several days together before coming back to Yenagoa. They slept on the same bed and engaged in moral acts which amounted to sin and against the marriage process of the Church. They felt what they had done was bad and reported themselves to their pastors. They were subsequently placed on discipline by the State Overseer. After some period, reporting that they have repented, the courtship was allowed to commence again.

As preparation for wedding was going on, it was discovered that they again engaged in acts contrary to the laid down procedure by the marriage committee of the church. This is after they had been disciplined earlier and warned not to engage in acts that will impact negatively on their proposed marriage. When the Marriage Committee put a direct question to them based on the latest development, the man accepted their error. It is important to note here, that the church stands on holiness and members have been consistently admonished to “abstain from all appearance of evil. It is not also true that the parents pleaded with the pastor to wed them on the 8th June, 2019. The summary is that they behaved themselves unseemingly, and were in haste to enjoy the benefits the church and God allow only married couples to enjoy.”

Reacting to insinuations that the former Chief judge was sacked due to her religion, the governor of the state said: “It baffles me when I read a story on social media that I did not forward Karatu’s name for confirmation because of her religion. “If you could recall, I re-submitted the name of Karatu for the second time on June 2, 2018, to the House for confirmation as Chief Judge. “I was informed that on Aug. 1, 2018, the House refused to confirm her appointment over the alleged alteration of her date of birth and primary school certificate,” he explained.
