PORT HARCOURT—The 2016 governorship candidate of Labour Party in Rivers State, Prince Tonye Princewill, has said he joined All Progressive Congress, APC, to deepen opposition politics in the state.
Princewill, who spoke in Port Harcourt yesterday, dismissed allegations by Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, that he is a political prostitute.
He said there was urgent need to have a virile opposition against the administration of Governor Nyesom Wike for the common good of the state, adding that he had always avoided compromising his political convictions, as it was for the same reason he left the state to focus on his business after the last governorship election.
His words: “I am not coming to APC because of governorship ambition. The tension in APC is mild. I am a peacemaker. I want to show that you can be in politics without ambitions. I am in APC to help build the party, not to contest.”
