Senator Magnus Abe has pledged his support for the APC national leader, Bola Tinubu stating obvious reasons.
Abe said as he had examined other candidates and arrived at the conclusion that only Tinubu can win the presidential election under the All Progressives Congress, (APC) after President Muhammadu Buhari.
The senator stated this at a rally in Port Harcourt on Thursday.
The Rivers state governorship aspirant dismissed all claims of sentiments, saying his support for Tinubu was not based on any emotion but because he wanted to be part of the winning team.
He said, “the reason I am supporting him is simple. I looked at all who want to run, who claim they have done this and that and I saw that Asiwaju is the person in APC that can deliver that killer punch that will keep the party in power after Buhari.
“I was not being sentimental, he did not tell me he was going to support me, no. I support him because I want the party to win.
“I know I cannot afford to be in the periphery of the government in the next 8 years.”
Speaking on Rivers politics, he called on his supporters to ignore the call for a Riverine or upland governor, saying it was only a ploy to deny Ogoni people the governorship position.
