The Media Committee of Senator Magnus Abe campaign organization has said that it was Governor Nyesom Wike, Mr. Felix Obuah and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that should apologize to Ogoni people and not Senator Magnus Abe for orchestrating the military invasion, which led to the killing of innocent persons in Ogoni land.
In a statement issued in Port Harcourt and signed by the chairman of the committee and spokesperson to Senator Magnus Abe, Mr. Parry Benson while reacting to a comment in the media by Mr. Felix Obuah, Chairman, Rivers State Chapter of Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) urging Senator Magnus Abe and Hon. Bari Mpigi to apologize to Ogoni people and families of the victims of the recent killings in Yeghe and Bori, said the military invasion was a plot to malign Senator Abe and the APC and hoodwink the people for their votes.
The committee stated that it would have ordinarily ignored the tantrums of Obuah and PDP as they were always clowning in the media on very serious issues requiring vivid explanation, discussion and correction of misconception, but chose to put the record straight for the sake of posterity.
The committee observed that the reaction of Obuah could be a grammatical blunder of mal-appropism of the word apologize instead of commiserate.
