“There is no fight in the APC. I am not in any way stopping Abe from running for the governorship (position), but what I know is that I will not support him. Abe is daring me; an Ikwerre son. He is abusing me every day. I will ensure I use Ikwerre vote against him.”

“My Ikwerre ethnic group has 1.1 million votes out of the 2.5 million eligible voters in the state. The position of the governor in the state is rotational among the various ethnic groups. It would amount to greed should Ikwerre hold on to power for more than 12 years.”

“I will support a person from the riverine area to occupy the position of the governor for eight years before power would move to Ogoni. At the moment, we have not chosen a candidate. Only God will decide who will become the next governor.”
