Okrika—A Governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, Senator Magnus Abe, has said the party would not accept the emergence of any governorship candidate from a kangaroo process, Niger Delta Insider reports.

Abe, who was referring to the naming of Tonye Cole as the party’s consensus candidate by a committee established by the Transport Minister, Chibuike Amaechi, insisted that nobody despite wealth or social status could enslave Rivers people.

According to a statement by his spokesperson, Parry Benson, Abe made this known at the National School Field, Okrika, during a meeting with stakeholders from Okrika and Ogu/Bolo Local Government Area of the State on Sunday.

He noted that Rivers people would not allow anybody to enslave them through crooked maneuvering.

Abe advised his supporters to brace up for the fight ahead, which he said would not be easy.

His words, “I have said it before and want to say it again, that Rivers people have never been slaves to anybody and nobody no matter the amount of money he has, nobody can enslave us here in Rivers State. We can chart our own destiny.

“Let me assure you all that the road ahead will not be easy but you have the power, the capacity and audacity and I know that we can do it. We will do it and we’ll win.

“I will present myself to the Rivers people and if they decide to choose a better person over me through a transparent process, I will support that person.

“We must have a clear and transparent process. But if they bring somebody through a Kangaroo process, we will not accept. We will challenge it.”
