Magnus Abe Blasts Channels TV Over Alleged Wrong Reportage On APC Meeting by Upritman(m): 7:58am On Apr 15
Suanu's Blog

The lawmaker representing Rivers South-East Senatorial District, Magnus Ngei Abe has expressed disappointment at the twist in a report by Channels Television over an APC Stakeholders Meeting held by the faction loyal to him.

The former governorship aspirant in a post on his Facebook page also lamented futile efforts made to get in touch with the Owner of Channels Television, Chief John Momoh. He alleged that the deliberate falsification of the details of the meeting was to achieve cheap political gains by his opponents within the APC in Rivers State using Channels TV as a medium.

Suanu's Blog recalls that a report by Channels Television Sunday night had indicated that the Abe-led APC Stakeholders Meeting yesterday was held to celebrate the victory of Gov.Nyesom Wike in the just concluded governorship election in Rivers State, a claim that the lawmaker has denied.

His post is as below;

Prince John Momoh
Chairman / CEO Channels Television

My dear Brother ,

RE: CHANNELS REPORT ON THE RIVERS APC STAKEHOLDERS MEETING

Compliments and fraternal greetings of this Easter Season. I hope my note meets you well.

You may have seen my frantic calls, however since the matter I wanted to discuss with you is of equal importance to the public I have decided to pas it to you through the public medium.

We held a meeting of APC Stakeholders in Rivers state where we amongst other things briefed members on the outcome of the Supreme Court Judgement, called for unity and inclusion in the party, and charted a way forward for the party.
Channels TV whose reporter was physically present at the meeting from the beginning to the end, reported to the world that we gathered to celebrate Wike’s victory.
I have since been receiving calls from all over the world from people expressing their shock and surprise.

That report was not only false it was politically fabricated. Channels has a right to decide which story to carry, but you have no right to decide whose story you carry. The event must be allowed to tell the story.
To forcefully present to the world that the meeting we held was in anyway or form associated with Governor Wike may be a story sponsored by those working for the opposition to create disaffection between the national leadership of the APC and the state, or worse still sponsored by the internal opposition within the Rivers State APC led by the Minister of Transportation that are the original purveyors of the story that we were somehow connected to Governor Wike.

Either way Channels TV has deliberately acted to poison the minds of Nigerians and withheld the truth from them.

It could not have been a mistake because your reporter was physically present at the meeting. Channels would have done better not to carry the story, than to carry a story about us that is definitely not our story.

The meeting was held precisely because the Supreme Court of Nigeria had by its position vindicated our struggle and have shown to Nigerians that our movement was powered by nothing other than the quest for justice and fair play within the APC, but your report did nothing to celebrate that, rather you joined our political traducers to tar us with a poisoned brush. It was not just mischief it was wicked mischief. It is unacceptable.

May I respectfully request that you
investigate the source of your story and make public the name of the source of your story, or the originator if you are prepared to stand by the story. Where you are unable to stand by your story, please tender an unreserved and public apology to me and all APC stakeholders who attended the meeting.

Secondly, publish the meeting on your medium from the beginning to the end let Nigerians see for themselves if your story in any way relates to the reality of what transpired at the meeting.

It is unfortunate that people choose to use Channels Television, a brand that Nigerians have come to associate with integrity and truth in broadcasting as a medium to destroy perceived political opponents and sponsor mischief.

Please act quickly to save both Channels and ourselves from further needless embarrassment.

I sincerely look forward to hearing from you ASAP.

Thank you and God bless you.

Magnus Ngei Abe

Two can't walk together except they agree so says the Bible. Abe has to lie like Wike who use to kill and deny he hasn't killed. Abe is responsible for APC'S woes in Rivers in cahoot with Wike yet he wants to package himself and deceive Nigerians that he's a different person. Abe, we know you as an ingrate.

It is laughable how this man has continually decieved himself and not the people of Rivers State. Distinguished Senator, i for one know and would always tell the world that you worked for wike. Tell your hench man Kennedy Friday, that, a wisper would latter be louder than a gossip. We are not fools any more, so stop this macabre dance of decite. I call on charles momoh not to bother investigating the story. I wonder what this policticians take us for, you called a meeting to explain to members of your left wing party the Supreme Court ruling. Smmmmmh.

Senator Magnus Abe fought Rotimi Amaechi and in the process stalled the political aspirations and careers of many in Rivers State. For every action, there are consequences. Senator Abe should be ready to stand up to whatever the 'wounded' lion of Ubima and other APC stakeholders in Rivers State will throw at him. I am not sure potential 2023 governorship aspirants in PDP will tolerate his joining the party.
Bottom line: Magnus Abe is out in the cold.
