The senate president also asked the APC Chairman in Rivers State, Dr. Ibiamu Ikanya, to set the ball rolling by initiating a peace process where all aggrieved party members would be on the same board.
“We want all the APC members in Rivers State to call for peace and reconciliation. What is wrong is wrong; we want peace in Rivers State and we want peace to reign in the state chapter of the party,” he said.
He commended Senator Magnus Abe for his humility and peaceful disposition, saying that the presence of senators and other personalities at the event was a clear testimony of Abe’s humility.
“Abe works very hard for the party. If not for Magnus Abe, somebody will not be in the cabinet today. You are a very loyal and courageous person,” he stated.
