we come together, all we should preach  is how Rivers State  should be the number one state in the country.”

According to the governor, when the time for election  comes, politicians can jostle for positions.

In his address, Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki urged the APC in Rivers State  to reconcile, pointing out that they would have challenges  if their internal conflict persists.
He said that the party ought to have one programme on Saturday, but the two programmes at different locations revealed  that something was wrong.
He said: “Without peace and reconciliation, victory will not be easy. There should be only one APC in Rivers State. What is happening is wrong. Let us have unity and let us work together “.
Senator Representing Rivers South-East, Senator Magnus Abe said as Rivers people, there is a common destiny  and heritage.
He said that  the people reserve  the right to determine who their leaders would be, stressing that the state must come first.
He said: “Now is the time to put the interest  of the state ahead  of anything  else.  We must work together, so that the people can benefit from the politics we play “.
