Senator Magnus Abe has said that his governorship ambition in the forthcoming election is a mandate from God.

The Senator Representing Rivers South-East Senatorial District in the National Assembly, said during a crossover church service on Monday in Bera, Gokana Local Government Area of Rivers State, that his God asked him to contest the governorship position of the state in 2019.

Abe expressed optimism that “neither the scheming of men nor the artificial obstacle created by men” would stop his dream from coming to fruition.

He said: “I want to say that, a lot had been said about me; a lot had been said of me, a lot had been said on me.

“One thing that I will like to share with all of you is that I know that this particular journey that I am on, to run for the governorship of Rivers State in 2019, it is my God that asked me to go and do this.

“And that is why no machination of men, no work of the hand of man, no artificial obstacle created by men will stop our dream from coming true.

“We will not only run for the governorship of Rivers State in 2019, we will be sworn-in as the Governor of Rivers State in 2019.

“So for me, I am not afraid; we will continue our struggle,” he said.

According to him, “You cannot have a situation that a Court had said does not exist. The High Court said so, the Court of Appeal had said so and then you still go ahead to pretend it exists.

“In any contest in a democracy where the rule of law is supreme, any contest between any man and the law, however powerful that man will be, at the end of the day, the laws will prevail. All APC members in Rivers State should remain calm and focused on victory,” he added.
