The Minister, who is the Leader of the APC in the South-South zone, also assured party members that there would no imposition of candidates by the APC during this year’s primaries.
He said: “The 2019 elections, especially the Governorship, are our last battle. If we win, we will take over Rivers State. If we lose in the election, we will go home and rest.
“We will not impose any candidate. Anybody who will go for any position, like Chairmanship, should go for primaries. Anybody who wins will be the party’s candidate.”
The former Rivers State Governor, stated that there was no need for Ikwerre people to monopolise political power in the State.
He urged members of the APC and IYM to participate in the ongoing voter registration, adding that, that was the avenue through which the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, could be voted out in Rivers State.
