Dearest, Kindly disregard and discountenance any rumour going round that I, Senator Magnus Ngei Abe, has stepped down from the 2023 Governorship race, THAT’S A LIE.

I am not in any such partnership with any individual nor group to truncate the zeal and desires of Rivers People. Nothing is worth more-than your friendship & partnership.
