Abe foresees political tsunami in Rivers
The governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Rivers State, Sen. Magnus Abe, has said the 2023 general election will be a political tsunami in the state, as it will break every known limit and barrier.
Abe stated in Port Harcourt, yesterday, that gone were the days when elections were won and lost along political party lines, pointing out that a lot of happenings in the country taught the people hard lessons.
His words: “Nigerians used to vote on the basis of political party; people voted anybody their party brought out. But things have changed. The 2023 elections will be a watershed in the political history of this country. In Rivers, the elections will be a political tsunami because it will break every known bound and barrier.
“Our votes, our support in 2023 will enshrine justice and progress in this land. Everybody that wakes up in the morning is looking for progress. Progress is not when the state is rich; it is when you make money for yourself.”
Earlier, Chikwem Orlu, House of Assembly candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Obio/Akpor Constituency 2, had assured party members and Abe of the people’s commitment to voting massively in the 2023 general elections.
He said: “The people you are seeing here today are teeming supporters of Project SMA. My business this evening is very simple; it is just to tell you that these people have unanimously agreed that no one vote will go to another party than SDP on whose platform you will be the governor of Rivers come 2023.
“Again, we want to reassure you that Obio/Akpor people and the entire Obio/Akpor Constituency 2 that I will represent will vote for you massively on the election day.”
