The self acclaimed Factional Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State under the Magnus Abe team of trouble shooters against the APC in Rivers State, Hon. Barr. Golden Chioma Ben, has resigned his membership of the party.
Barr. Golden on Tuesday announced he has lost interest in the party in the state and intends to pitch his tent with another political party.
This is coming after series of atrocities perpetrated by the self acclaimed factional chairman of the party in the state that caused the party not to field candidate at all levels in the 2019 election in Rivers State.
Magnus Abe had organized team of followers who announced Golden Chioma as their own party chairman against the INEC recognized APC executive in Rivers State led by Emeka Beke.
A situation which led the party into unending disagreement at various stages until recent times after the APC Primaries that saw candidates emerged.
Golden Chioma is a former lawmaker in the Rivers State House of Assembly. Reports from his constituency in Etche has it that his lifting came through the former governor of Rivers State, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi which he later said to have betrayed and formed opposition in same party.
While Golden Chioma chose to chicken out at this stage after they had launched a movement tagged “SMA is coming” is still not clear. Report from various quarters stipulates he seem very tired of Senator Magnus Abe’s style of rigmarole politics without clear vision of what others tend to benefit outside personal aggrandizement and media postures.
However, True Blue Reporters gathered that Golden Chioma seem also uncomfortable with Magnus Abe’s plan of possible new found political party to pursue his Governorship ambition which he’s yet to make public but have continued to gather signatures to actualize.
Golden will be announcing his new found political party which may likely be People’s Democratic Party or any other as speculated.
Magnus Abe, Tony Okocha, Worgu Boms and other associates of Golden Chioma are yet to react to the new development as at the time of filing this report. True Blue Reporters will bring you up to date
