In 2018 prior to the 2019 House of Assembly election in Rivers State Mrs. Dabota Godswill Jumbo campaigned effectively and was ready for the D-Day until the Supreme Court of Nigeria’s judgment stopped Rivers State Chapter of All Progressives Congress APC from participating in the said 2019 House of Assembly, National Assembly and Governorship elections.
In that year she took to her Facebook and Twitter platforms mobilizing supporters thus
“Sweet friends and family on Facebook, I hereby state my commitment and reaffirm my position as a Candidate of the APC to represent the good people of Bonny Constituency in the Rivers State House of Assembly.
Your words of encouragement have been overwhelming. I may not boast of too many things but I have confidence in my capacity to be a good representation.
Over the years and last few months, I have added more value to my person through very extensive consultative needs assessment visits in my constituency and I clearly understand the task ahead. You do not need to hail from Bonny to be part of this movement, the future is pregnant and we need to push together to bring it forth.
Furthermore, some concerned friends have asked I do a fundraiser for this cause, and now is the time to reach out in earnest
This means that with over 4500 friends on Facebook supporting 1000 naira or more, the movement would be a force for victory. All our activities are transparent and you would be brought up to speed with our activities. On our Facebook page, Mrs Dabota G Jumbo We count on your material support as well. Our time is now! My Campaigns have Started in Earnest. Happy New year.
Thank you in advance. God bless you. Dabota Godswill Jumbo”.
