Senator Magnus Abe recently stated clearly that he is not leaving APC, and these were his exact words 

"Let me say it clearly without any iota of doubt; I am a member of the All Progressives Congress and I will remain a member of the All Progressives Congress. No matter what happens, I will not leave my party, the All Progressives Congress”. 

"But, people  need to understand certain things. In this state, the main dynamics of our social cohesion is in favour of our party. Rivers State is ours for the taking; everybody who knows the story of our state knows that APC should be able to take the state. But to do that, we have to be one party”.

"We cannot be in a party where the Minister of Transportation, with all due respect, have stated clearly that what he is running now is his own faction and certain people do not belong to that faction. That if he is removing leaders, he is removing leaders because they are not part of his own group, not because they are not members of the APC”. 

"Now, if all of us are in the APC and one group is this way and another group is the other way, where will the party meet to take the state? We have a State Executive Committee of the party, the Chairman should call a meeting of the State Executive Committee of the party so that members from all the factions can meet and discuss the way forward."
