Tinubu settles Wike, Magnus Abe’s long time rift 

President-elect, Bola Tinubu on Thursday settled the rift between Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and Senator Magnus Abe, the 2023 governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party, SDP, in the state.

Over the years, Wike and Abe had endured a troubled relationship due to their political differences.

In 2022, Abe left the All Progressives Congress, APC, for the SDP to contest the governorship election in Rivers.

Before leaving the APC, Abe was one of the political mobilisers for Tinubu’s presidential ambition.

The former lawmaker is one of the key allies of the president-elect in Rivers state.

However, the President-elect resolved the rift between the two in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital during his two days visit.

The development was disclosed by a Twitter user @Topboychriss.

He wrote: “Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu today settled the rift between Governor Nyesom Wike and Senator Magnus Ngei Abe.

“Asiwaju is indeed a unifier. Atiku would have supported one against the other and created more division in the system.
