The member representing Khana/Gokana Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Dumnamene Robinson Dekor has advised other governorship candidates in the race with Sir Siminialayi Fubara of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to seek the path of honour by stepping down for Sim.
Addressing journalists in Bori, headquarters of Khana Local Government Area during the PDP Rivers South-East Senatorial Campaign rally on Saturday, Dum Dekor said the overwhelming support being enjoyed by the PDP flag bearer should send a signal to other contestants that it is not too late to throw in the towel.
Rt. Hon. Dekor who chairs the Committee on Host Communities in the Green Chambers described the rally as a pre-victory celebration for the people of the Rivers South-East Senatorial District who in his words, are heading to history to produce the first governor of the state from the zone.
“We have come to tell the world that we are happy that Sim Fubara comes from our own Senatorial District.
“That for the first time in our political history, we are going to have a governor from our Senatorial District.
“So we are celebrating that victory today and to send a note of caution to all those who come in different guise, under all kinds of names and colours, that have no place in our politics.
“It’s easy for them to step aside. It’s easy and better for them to take a bow. They should come and join us, work in unison and deliver Sir Sim Fubara, a governor that is prepared to consolidate on the gains that we have from this democratic dispensation”, he enthused.
Rt. Hon. Dekor who is also the PDP Candidate for Khana/Gokana Federal Constituency said the people of the Rivers South-East Senatorial District have come out to make a statement that they do not play what he called “politics on the pages of newspapers and social media”, adding that the PDP do real time politics which he said, is on ground.
Rt. Hon. Dum Dekor, a one-time Deputy Speaker in the Rivers State House of Assembly as well as former Works Commissioner in the state, said the crowd at the rally is a confirmation of what PDP’s votes would look like in the coming general elections.
“I come from Khana Local Government Area and we have 395 units and over 186,000 votes. We are ready. What happens in this local government is that overtime, we have always given the governorship candidate and other PDP candidates the very best.
“You can see that we are fully mobilized. You go to the units, we are fully mobilized. You go to the wards, we are fully mobilized”, he said.
