Rivers APC Endorses Magnus Abe For 2019 Governorship Poll
The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has endorsed Senator representing Rivers South East, Magnus Ngei Abe for the state’s 2019 governorship poll.
In a communiqué issued at the end of a meeting of the party’s stakeholders in Port Harcourt, on Thursday, the group unanimously called on Abe to offer himself for the party’s governorship primary.
The communiqué which was signed by Chidi Wihioka, Felix Nwaeke, Augustine Wokocha, Maurice Pronen, Marcus Nle Ejii and Ipalibo Harry, reads:
“Without equivocation and with the power and support of both the APC constitution and the Nigerian Constitution, the meeting stated that Abe’s qualification to aspire to the office of governor of Rivers State on the platform of our party could not be questioned.
“Accordingly, the meeting called on him to present himself for the 2019 gubernatorial on the platform of APC, as he clearly has the support and approval of a majority of our party fateful in the state.
“The meeting affirmed the right of party members to have ambition, openly express it and canvass and lobby and rally support for its actualisation without fear and within the laws and constitution of the party.
“The meeting strongly urge the state working committee to strive for independence, impartiality and inclusiveness if the party must come out of the present low morale of members.”
