The immediate past Minister for Agriculture made this known during the inauguration of the campaign office of Lokpobiri.
Speaking to party faithful, Audu Ogbeh said the former lawmaker was the most qualified person to seek the governorship ticket of the party.
Ogbe said: Heineken is like a son to me. We worked together in the ministry of agriculture for three and half years. You know his history. You know him and he knows you. He has experience, knowledge and intelligence. When we were in the ministry, we were always discussing the big problems of Nigeria today, the problem of unemployment.
We realise that what we need to do is to create jobs. If you give Lokpobiri a chance and I believe you will, he will not let you down. So, please work hard for him and give him all the support and make sure he gets into the government house.
You will be grateful to God at the end of this exercise that you brought somebody in who has the capacity and understands your problems. Give him a chance and support him. He knows your problems and I can assure you that from the rest part of the country, we will give him the support he needs to make sure he wins.
