President of the Nigerian Senate, Senator Bukola Saraki, has said that without Senator Magnus Abe, Rotimi Amaechi could not have become a Minister.
Recall, that Senator Abe is in a running battle with Amaechi, over the Gubernatorial candidate ticket for the 2019 election in Rivers State.
Saraki who described Abe as a humble Lawmaker, said that the Nigerian Senate is solidly behind the Rivers State Politician.
The Senate President also condemned the rally organised by the Minister, saying it is uncalled for.
According to him: “Senator Magnus Abe is a humble man, and he exhibits that in his way of life.
“He is a loyal party man, and I can tell you he played a huge role in the formation of the APC. I say this because we were in the 7th Senate together when the merger process started.
“If you look around, you will see Senators from all the 6 Geo-Political zones of this country, and as the President of the Nigerian Senate, I can tell you that this is the first time this is happening.
“Magnus Abe played a huge role during the selection of Ministers. You will not be in the Federal Cabinet without Abe. I know what he did.
“To now hear that another rally is holding somewhere else is not good at all. What is bad is. I thank God the Chairman of Party (Chief Davies Ibyiamu Ikanya) is here. You have a lot of work to do.”
