magnus-abeSenator Magnus Abe has urged people of Rivers South-East senatorial district to vote in the forthcoming rerun election with their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs), not with guns.

Abe, who is the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for the forthcoming rerun, made the call during an APC rally at Ngo, Andoni Local Government Area of Rivers on Thursday.

He alleged that opponents of APC in the state were desperate to win the election.

“Let them tell their members to vote with PVCs; we will tell our people to vote with PVCs too.

“Let them not do guns against PVCs. Let us do PVC against PVC, and see who will emerge”.

According to Abe, opponents of his party only accept election results that are in their favour and will never take in good fate, outcomes against them.

“Tai Local Government result for the March 19 re-run election is a clear example. They have even refused to swear-in APC Assembly members-elect from other constituencies.

“They want the result of elections declared in their favour against the rules to stand but do not want result of Tai to stand”, he said.

Abe commended security agencies for the peaceful conduct of the Edo governorship election and urged them to replicate it in Rivers.

“With the just concluded governorship election in Edo, the Nigerian security have shown that they have the capacity to create an atmosphere for free and fair elections in the country.

“The next challenge, step and obstacle to the reputation of the security agencies of Nigeria is Rivers.

“Two times, they have been in Rivers to do election, but it did not work because people hired boys with guns to scare away the people, and turn election into war”, he said.

Senator Abe, therefore, urged APC members to mobilise the electorate to vote for the party because it had the best candidates.
