No other candidate is better prepared to rule Nigeria like Tinubu – Magnus Abe

The Candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in the
2023 Governorship Election in Rivers State, Senator Magnus Abe, on Tuesday,
said nobody was better prepared to rule Nigeria like President Bola Tinubu.

Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the ruling All
Progressives Congress (APC) was declared the winner of the keenly contested
February 25 election. He defeated his closest rivals — Atiku Abubakar of the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Labour Party’s Peter Obi to clinch the
nation’s coveted seat.

Speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Abe said
Tinubu is well experienced to lead Africa’s largest economy.

“Of all the candidates that indicated interest to run for
the 2023 presidency, nobody was better prepared, nobody has better experience,
nobody has greater capacity than Tinubu,” he stated.

“Atiku Abubakar himself, when he was politically-challenged,
he ran to Tinubu. It was Tinubu that accommodated him, gave him the platform,
and supported him to run.

“So, this man (Tinubu) has the capacity, the knowledge and
the reach to bring diverse people together in this country. He has shown that
repeatedly, including this last election.

“If it was not for the fact that it was Tinubu that was
running, I doubt if the APC would have been able to do as much as they have
done with all the challenges that went on that time.”

Loyal To Tinubu?

During the interview, Abe, who represented Rivers South-East
Senatorial District in the 9th Assembly, pledged his loyalty to President
Tinubu.

Although he became a federal lawmaker under the APC
platform, he later dumped the ruling party for the SDP where he clinched the
party’s ticket for the March 11 governorship poll in the oil-rich state.

Despite his loss to Siminalayi Fubara of the PDP, the
senator has not returned to the ruling APC. Rather, he pledged his loyalty to
the President who is also the ruling party’s leader.

When asked if he has dumped the SDP for APC, he said, “I
have not moved. I went to the SDP primarily because of the Rivers State
situation and politics of Rivers State.

“As far as the national politics was concerned, I have
always been where you know that I am.”

After the show’s anchor, Seun Okinbaloye asked him if he was
a Tinubu man, Abe replied, “That’s where I am.”
