BREAKING: Labour Party Abandons Rivers Gov Candidate, Endorses PDP Simimialayi Fubara

Few days to the March 11 Governorship and state assembly elections, the Rivers State Chapter of the Labour Party has adopted the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Sir Siminialaye Fubara.

The state Chairman of the Labour Party, Deinye Pepple, stated this at a news briefing  in Port Harcourt on Tuesday, saying  Fubara’s senatorial district had yet to produce a governor since the creation of the state.

He stated, “Voting a riverine candidate in the person of Simimialayi Fubara from the South East Senatorial District of the state during the up coming governorship poll ensures that the Labour Party and her members are defenders and ambassadors of the values that have set her Obidient movement apart from all other parties.”

Following the development, the party has apparently abandoned its standard bearer, Mrs. Beatrice Itubo.

Details later.
