He said he have been told by many of his people to move over to the opposition but maintains his decision is the right decision for the sake of Rigo.

“You played your part at the polling station (in 2017 NGE), now it’s up to me to make the right decision, right political decision for Rigo’s sake”,Gure said.  

“I’m with the current government, and that’s where I will stay, some of my constituents have texted me, and sent me WhatsApp messages telling me to move to the other side (Opposition) and others telling me to stay where I am,

“This tells me that we all have our own opinions, but you gave me the mandate and as your leader that’s my decision to make,

“I elected to stay with the current government and I reaffirm that, “Hon Gure stressed.

“It’s best to stay where we are, instead of just moving around, I just made one move and that’s where I will stay for the rest of my term, “he said.
