“Now, it is one man, one vote. All the votes must be in one basket from the governorship to the House of Assembly. The other one we are concluding. When we conclude, you will be told.
“Nobody should intimidate you. Nobody should tell you any story. We are free-born in this country. We are not second-class citizens. Nobody can tell us anything.
“I dare them. Let anybody do any funny thing, We’ll tell them we are from Rivers State.
“As we finish from here now, you’ll go home and start working before the appropriate time when we will ring the bell. When you hear the bell ringing, know that the decision has been taken.”
