Magnus Abe, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, has cited politics of bitterness and division as the greatest challenge troubling the state. He said it was adversely affecting the development of the state.
He said the situation was making it impossible for Rivers people to come together to fight for Rivers development.
“The greatest challenge that Rivers State faces today is not all the things we have mentioned. It is the fact that hatred, bitterness have characterised our politics and have divided us in a way that we have never been divided before.
“It has made it impossible for us to come together to face the challenges that are confronting our state,” he added.
Speaking on Saturday in Rivers, Abe also praised the State Governor, Nyesom Wike, for taking measures to resolve the challenges facing the state.
“I have always said Your Excellency should be a governor to all Rivers people; both those that like you and those who don’t. Those that voted for you and those who did not,” Abe said.
He pointed out that while some people were looking for the causes of Rivers political challenges, Wike is seeking solutions.
