The governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Rivers State, Senator Magnus Ngei Abe, has explained why he withdrew his case challenging the victory of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.

After the governorship election in the state, Abe and his party approached the Rivers State Governorship Election Tribunal to challenge the victory of Governor Nyesom Wike-backed PDP candidate, Siminalayi Fubara.

But last week, Abe, who was accused of being used by Governor Wike to destroy the Rivers All Progressives Congress(APC), and his party, announced that they have withdrawn the matter from the tribunal.

In a statement signed by his spokesperson, Parry Saroh Benson, Abe said the case was withdrawn because he does not want to enter into a direct confrontation with Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the President-elect.
