Press Statement: ANOTHER PLOT TO MALIGN SENATOR ABE UNCOVERED

The attention of the Media Committee of Senator Magnus Ngei Abe campaign organization has been drawn to a mischievous and childish publication in Scan news, an on-line publication, entitled: “Reason Why Magnus Abe Visited Port Harcourt Barracks of the Nigerian Army”.

Nyesom Wike and the Rivers State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to perfect their rigging plan and to deter law enforcement agents from doing their work with regard to ensuring adequate security during  the December 10 legislative re-run elections. Let it be stated unequivocally, clearly and succinctly that Senator Magnus Abe never visited 2nd Amphibious Brigade, Bori camp, Port Harcourt, on Friday November 11, 2016 and that he was on that day at Bera community in Gokana Local Government Area, holding meetings with stakeholders and party faithful.

Getting the job done is more important than who gets the glory

In 1896, Thomas Edison, the great inventor who invented the electric bulb, was working on an idea to design a car when he heard that a young man who worked in his company had created an experimental car. Edison met the youngman at his company’s party in New York and interviewed him about the car. He was impressed! He had the same idea as the young man but he was considering electricity as the power source while the young man used a gasoline engine to power the car. He slammed his fist down and shouted “young man, that’s the thing! You have it! … I think you are on to something! I encourage you to continue your pursuits!” With these words of encouragement from the most highly respected inventor in the United States at that time, HENRY Ford continued his work, invented a car and became wealthy.
