Rivers 2019: Abe Rejects Amaechi Anointed Candidate Tonye Cole.
Frontline Governorship aspirant of the All Progressive Congress(APC) and Senator Representing Rivers South East Senatorial Senator Magnus Ngei Abe has rejected the purported anointing of Bussiness Mogul Tonye Cole for the ticket of the All Progressive Congress by Rivers State Former Governor Mr Chibuike Amaechi.
Senator Magnus Abe reacted to the endorsement of the Business man by the Former Governor of the state on Sunday while commissioning the Freedom House Eleme Chapter donated by the People of Eleme.
The Senator said the reason while the People of Rivers South East Senatorial District gave all in support of APC in 2015 was because the people believed the party will end the Deputy Governor and SSG positions which the zone were being compensated with over the years.
Speaking in Pidgin,the Senator Said
”If big Oga gather for Lagos to Choose person wey go govern Lagos,that one no problem,but if the big oga’s gather for Lagos go choose person wey go govern Rivers State,that one we no go gree”
“I hear say the big big Oga’s don chose their candidate for Lagos; that one na for Lagos state. Very soon, the small small oga’s go choose their own Governor for Rivers State”
Abe urged the people of Eleme to stand firm in the All Progressive Congress and defend their Choice
”Dont be bamboozled by what the big Oga’s are doing,we have many small Ogas than the Big Oga’s”
”I read a post by our big Oga where he said that people pleaded with him and swore that they will abide by his Choice,i want to say here and what we have been saying from the beginning that those who tell you Yes when the answer is NO are those who are deceiving you,we have told him from the beginning that our own answer is No
He Said the people of Rivers South East will only accept a candidate from Rivers South East Senatorial District.
