Why people are running away from Port Harcourt to Abuja – Magnus Abe

0

Senator Magnus Abe, representing Rivers South senatorial district, has claimed that Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital is no longer safe for habitation.

He said the development had forced many people to relocate to Abuja.

Speaking in Abuja when some lawmakers from his home state of Rivers visited him, senator Abe said Wike had succeeded in ruining the state within the last two years.

He vowed that the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will not abandon President Muhammadu Buhari.

He said: “People are coming to Abuja because Port Harcourt is unsafe. Let us face the issue. I am not shying away from anything. Whatever I have set out to do, I will do it.

“The case of local government issue in Rivers state has been pending in court for almost two years. I urge the Judiciary to hurry up.”

The lawmaker equally called on the National Judicial Commission (NJC) to intervene in the prolonged local government case, pending in court.

“The last time they were to sit, Rivers state Government said they were renovating the courts. They went and removed the roof.

“This was a deliberate attempt to frustrate the case. I am urging the NJC to intervene the same way they did with judges facing corruption trial.”
