The Senator representing Rivers South-East Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Senator Magnus Ngei Abe, has declared that the Constitution of the All Progressives Congress (APC) does not allow the imposition of candidates for election.

Abe, who made the declaration while speaking during a live programme of a private radio station in Port Harcourt, was reacting to a statement credited to the Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.

Amaechi, who is the immediate past Governor of Rivers State, had during a recent visit to the state, said the party, will conduct primaries to choose its governorship candidate for the 2019 election in the state.

But, the Senator stated that what the former Governor said was to restate the position of the party’s Constitution on the conduct of primaries to nominate candidates for the elections.

He said: “The Constitution of the party does not allow imposition of candidates. I think he was only restating what we already know. The Constitution of the party will be followed in the decision and affairs of the party.”

Abe, who is the Chairman, Senate Committee on FERMA, stated that the ultimate goal and effort of every APC member in the state is to see a united party that will wrestle power from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2019.

The Senator said: “As far as I am concerned, the ultimate goal, the concentration and the effort of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State is to be united in one accord.

“Our main objective is how to reclaim our state from the opposition party and give it back to Rivers people. So, I will say that any effort by any member of the party that could lead to achieving that objective should be applauded.”
