Senator Magnus Abe.
Senator Magnus Ngei Abe, the Senator representing Rivers South East Senatorial District, has called for unity among Rivers people towards the progress and stability of the state.
In a Christmas goodwill message, Senator Abe said it is hoped that insecurity and violence that characterised 2016 will be a thing of the past in 2017.
“It is our hope and prayer that the insecurity, violence and challenges witnessed in the state in 2016 will be a thing of the past in 2017.”
He urged those who foment trouble to sheath their sword and embrace peace in the overall interest of the state.
“I want to appeal to all Rivers men and women that we come together, work together for peace, security and stability of our state. I’m sure it is the intention of Rivers people that they need to see change in the way politics is conducted in Rivers State.”
The former Secretary to Rivers State Government commended the people of Rivers South East for voting for him, assuring them that by the grace of God that their hope will not be dashed.
“I want to thank everybody for the support that was given to me in the last election, which cuts across party lines and to say to all those who did not that by the grace of God, your own hope, dream and expectation will be met in the coming year.”
Senator Abe, therefore, wished them Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year in advance.
“I want to use this opportunity to wish the good people of Rivers South East Senatorial District and indeed the entire people of Rivers State Merry Christmas and a very prosperous, progressive and secured New Year.”
