Hours After Announcing SDP Membership, Magnus Abe Emerges Governorship Candidate

Former Rivers South East senator and chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Magnus Abe, has emerged as the governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), in Rivers State.

This is coming barely 24 hours after Abe officially announced his membership in SDP, after dumping APC over irregularities.

Abe emerged as the governorship candidate during a primary election conducted in Port Harcourt on Saturday and supervised by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)  senior officer, Emmanuel Isong.

Abe pulled 30 delegate votes to emerge unopposed in the contest and was declared the winner of the election by the SDP Chairman, substitution electoral committee, Muhammed Ibrahim.

While describing Abe as a credible candidate for the governorship election in Rivers State, Ibrahim expressed appreciation to the party members for making the election peaceful.

He also advised members of the party who are yet to register and collect their permanent voter’s card (PVC) to do so before the INEC deadline.

He said: “Today, we have elected a credible candidate for the governorship election in Rivers state. Let me thank all of you for conducting yourselves peacefully and for electing a very popular candidate in the person of distinguished Senator Magnus Abe as the governorship candidate of the party for Rivers state.

“For those of you who are yet to register and collect your PVCs, please ensure that you do so before the expiration of the deadline as slated by INEC.

“I am very confident that with a quality candidate like Senator Magnus Abe, SDP will become the ruling party in Rivers state come 2023.”
