The All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for Rivers South East senatorial district in the legislative re-run elections, Magnus Ngei Abe, has implored Rivers electorate to emulate the American voters who voted for their candidates based on the dictate of their conscience devoid of intimidation and manipulation.
In a congratulatory message issued in Port Harcourt and signed by his spokesperson, Mr. Parry Saroh Benson, Abe urged Rivers voters particularly in Rivers South East senatorial district to stand firm and vote for a candidate of their choice in the forthcoming re-run elections not minding threats in some quarters to deny them developmental projects.
He said Americans demonstrated that it is their right and responsibility to choose their leader despite world opinion. Abe congratulated the President-elect of the United States of America, Mr. Donald Trump, particularly the American people for their choice, pointing out that they have set an example for the rest of the world about the true meaning of democracy.
“I congratulate the President elect of the United States of America, Donald Trump and I congratulate the people of America for once again setting an example for the rest of the world as to the true meaning of democracy.” He explained that the Americans respect the outcome of their elections and the process with which their leaders emerge and enjoined Nigerians and Rivers people to do that in order to deepen democracy in Rivers State.
Abe urged the Rivers South East Senatorial District to elect a Senator of their own choice that would do their own biddings.
“I urge the people of Rivers South East Senatorial District to be ready to follow in the example of the people of America to elect a Senator of their own choice in the forthcoming re-run elections.”
The former Secretary to Rivers State Government advised every stakeholder in the re-run elections to eschew bitterness and ensure that the elections were conducted peacefully and transparently as the American elections were.
