Senator Magnus Ngei Abe, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in the Rivers South East Senatorial District re-run election has charged Andoni people to vote for APC in the forthcoming re-run legislative elections in the state in order to be part of the ruling party in Abuja.
Abe gave the charge while speaking at the kickoff of the door-to-door campaign for his re-election bid at Oyorokoto community in Andoni Local Government Area on Thursday.
He reiterated that embracing the ruling party was in the best interest of Andoni people.
He said that during the campaign in 2015, he had worked out an understanding with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) as the chairman of the Senate Committee of the Downstream sector of the Petroleum Industry to have a fuel barge that would dispense petroleum products, unfortunately, the then ruling party PDP stopped the arrangement on the ground that the people of Oyorokoto were APC and the arrangement would enhance the success of APC in the area.
Continuing, he said, “now that APC is at the federal level, the barge will be arranged.”
Senator Abe urged Oyorokoto people to come out and prove that they are for APC, adding that nobody would obstruct the arrangement again as APC is the party at the centre and assured them that he would fulfill all the campaign promises he made in 2015.
The former Secretary to the Rivers State Government further said the forthcoming re-run elections would be conducted in a free and fair manner and that nobody would rig the election and shoot guns again as they did in the past, pointing out that their votes would now count.
He urged the canvassers to go from door-to-door and tell the people why they should vote for APC.
Among the stalwarts of the party present at the event were Gilbert Egop, candidate in the Andoni/Opobo/Nkoro Federal Constituency, House of Representatives re-run election and Dr Dressman, the candidate in the State House of Assembly re-run polls.
