Governorship candidate of the National Rescue Movement in Rivers State, Sobomabo Jackrich has denied stepping down for Tonye Cole of the All Progressives Congress.
Sobomabo in a statement debunked the claims noting that Cole only paid him a visit in his office on how to collaborate as candidates of their respective parties to ensure victory for Rivers people.
His statement reads
Yesterday, just after addressing false rumors in my Facebook live session that I had stepped down for Pst. Tonye Cole of the APC, he paid me a courtesy visit in my office. During our meeting, we had a fruitful discussion on how we can collaborate as candidates of our respective parties to ensure victory for the people of Rivers State.
As I stated in my broadcast, this is the first meeting I’ve had with him regarding the politics of our state. Pastor Tonye Cole remains his party’s candidate, and I remain my party’s candidate. However, we have given ourselves the opportunity to share ideas and efforts to ensure that either of us who emerges as governor will work for the benefit of all Rivers people.
Ye the intimidation, high-handed manipulations, and conspiracy to subvert the will of the people that we experienced in Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly Elections, we must remain undeterred and unwavering in our quest to rescue Rivers State from bad governance.
On March 11, let us all come out in large numbers and cast our votes, secure our votes for the Bee Party (National Rescue Movement), and we will march to the Brick House and change the negative narratives about Rivers State.
