The Ogbako Ndi Igbo in Rivers State today endorsed Distinguished Senator Magnus Ngei Abe, frontline Governorship candidate in Rivers State on the platform of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) for the position of Governor of Rivers State in 2023.
The group also recognized Senator Abe as Nwanna Di Na Mba and issued him a certificate of recognition to that effect for his friendship with the Igbo community in Rivers State over the years.
The endorsement took place at Freedom House, Senator Abe’s bustling political facility in GRA, Port Harcourt, earlier yesterday.
The group said they are working hard to secure the unflinching support of the Igbo community in Rivers State for SDP and Senator Magnus Abe in 2023 because he is the best candidate in the race for Governorship and the one who understands the workings of a plural society where every group is provided the right opportunity and atmosphere to thrive and contribute meaningfully to the progress of the state.
They said Abe’s character over the years shows that he does not discriminate and all residents of Rivers State will experience prosperity because equal opportunity will be created for all.
They promised that the Igbo community in Rivers State will actively support Senator Abe to realize his just aspiration to offer knowledge-based leadership that will crystallize growth, peace, harmony, and prosperity to all Rivers people in 2023.
