A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Magnus Abe, has said it is better to align with those looking for solutions to the lingered political crisis in Rivers State than to associate with those looking for the causes.

A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Magnus Abe, has said it is better to align with those looking for solutions to the lingered political crisis in Rivers State than to associate with those looking for the causes.

Abe, who represented Rivers Southeast Senatorial District in the National Assembly, however, commended the state Governor, Nyesom Wike, for taking concrete measures towards resolving challenges facing the state. 

Abe stated this during a funeral service in honour of the late Mrs. Fyna Oby Atuzie-Boms, wife of former Attorney General of the state, Worgu Boms at the Civic Centre in Port Harcourt, yesterday.

He said: “… I also want to recollect all the efforts you (Wike) have made, not just in words, but also in action to end the bitterness and division that have characterised the politics of Rivers State. I want to say here, today, that while some people are busy looking for who is causing the problem, you are trying to look for solutions…” 

Senator Abe regretted that bitterness and hatred have characterised the politics of Rivers State, making it impossible for the people to come together to fight for the state’s development. 

The former Federal Lawmaker called for a change of attitude towards tackling the menace of cancer, which claimed Mrs. Atuzie-Boms’ life.

He said Nigerian must take concrete steps to confront cancer and check the number of lives being claimed by the scourge.
