Magnus Abe Emerges Rivers SDP Governorship Candidate
Former chieftain of All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator Magnus Abe has emerged the governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Rivers about 24 hours after he confirmed that he has defected to the party.
Abe emerged the governorship candidate in a substitution primary conducted by the SDP in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital on Saturday..
The substitution primary was monitored by officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as stipulated by the Electoral Act 2022.
Kennedy Friday, one of Abe’s aides, said his principal who was the sole candidate in the primary received all the 30 votes available in the exercise.
“Abe’s emergence is a prayer answered for overwhelming majority of Rivers people who were yearning for a formidable alternative to the ruling party in Rivers State.
“There is already wild jubilation in Rivers State for this great news which has given Rivers people a viable alternative that will enable them express themselves in the democratic space,” Friday said.
