He said the Rivers people are more interested in governance that will to the people, rather than politics.

The senator said: “I have already purchased my form to for the primary election in our party, the APC, and it will interest you to know that the Rivers people contributed money to support me to get the form.

“The people from every divide, every ethnic group, every political affiliation, and religious affiliation, including , Christians, and people across the state to purchase the form. Some contributed N20,000 while some brought N1 million. They brought money to help me cross that barrier.

“I think that with that kind of background, the party members across the state have realised that I’m one of their surest best to cross that bridge when we actually get there.

“Secondly, let me also say that as far as I know, what Rivers people are interested in at this is not so much of politics, but effective governance.

You see like I was talking to our children the other at the Rivers State University, when you are hungry in the , nobody knows whether you are from Kalabari or Ogoni. When you don’t have a job, nobody knows whether you are from Ekpeye or . At that point our problems are the same.”

Abe added: “The of our situation today in Rivers State is that we need to work together; we need to come together across political and ethnic privileges to be able to harness the vast and enormous economic that the state has. We need that can that message of unity and inclusion.”
