The governorship candidates of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) Tonte Ibraye and Tonto Dikeh have stepped down from the March 18 governorship elections.

The actress made the announcement in the late hours of Thursday, March 16.

She said that her party was no longer in the race.

According to her, their party had now adopted All Progressive Congress (APC)’s candidate, Tonye Cole.

Tonto then went ahead to call on her supporters to vote for APC’s Tonye Cole during the gubernatorial election to take place on March 18.

She wrote: “Having carefully listened to the advise of elders and political leaders of Rivers State on the need for the opposition to look inwards and present a unified, competent and generally acceptable candidate with the capacity to win the March 18th gubernatorial elections, and the need for the opposition to prevent splitting its votes amongst several candidates, today we officially adopted Pastor Tonye Cole, Governorship Candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Rivers State as the consensus and unifying Candidate of the opposition. Upon his victory Tonye Cole will form a unity government comprising of the APC and other opposition parties in this alliance titled "Stronger Together for a United Rivers State".

I hereby call on all my supporters to vote for Tonye Cole of the APC this Saturday.”
