Magnus Abe warns Nyesom Wike against dividing the state

Former Senator who represented Rivers South-East Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Magnus Abe, has warned the state Governor, Nyesom Wike, that he may end up dividing the state into two camps.

In a statement signed by his media aide, Parry Benson, Abe said Wike’s effort to curb the spread of COVID-19 could be counterproductive if he is not strictly humane.

The former lawmaker noted that the government may win the lockdown battle and lose the war.

Abe, a chieftain and factional governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2019 election, said Wike runs the risk of dividing the state into two distinct camps.

Wike on Monday announced a temporary lifting of the lockdown on Obio/Akpor and Port Harcourt City Local Government Areas from Tuesday to Wednesday.
