Abednego, who is a seasoned administrator and philanthropist polled 34 to Warigbani’s 26 .

“I will like to thank my opponent in this primaries, Pastor Ezekiel Warigbani.

This outcome today has re-affirmed my optimism about the capacity of our party to triumph at the polls at the next election,” Abednego said in his acceptance speech.

He promised to tackle the waste management problem in the state,

“Rivers will be free from refuse. I will deploy machines on Aba road and other streets to sweep the streets of PortHarcourt because I have discovered over time that the labourers had worked over time without better pay but with machines this jobs can be effectively done and alterative source of income will be made to these workers. I have a master plan for this, I didn’t just come up with this. When I’m elected as Rivers governor, this is one of the things I will do first.

Abednego also promised to prioritise the workd of pensioners and civil servants and creation of employment if elected governor.

“I have observed very carefully on how our civil servants have been treated. Pensioners are not paid their gratuity and arrears are owed, no promotions, no increment whatsoever before you talk of employment. This area I must address under my administration, he said.
