Disqualification: Tonye Princewill Furious At Wike, Rivers PDPLatest News, News, News From The State Tuesday, November 25th, 2014
One of the PDP governorship aspirants in Rivers state, Tonye Princewill is not a happy man at this time over his disqualification from the race by the PDP South – South screening committee.
To this end, the politician is accusing the former Minister state for Education, Nyesome Wike of being responsible for his disqualification.
A statement issued by Princewill’s media aide wanted supporters to determine his political future.
His words: Nyesom Wike’s involvement is glaring as the disqualification came in reaction to a petition submitted by his GDI executive in Asari-Toru LGA.
“This move is not just pathetic but desperate. After Prince Tonye raised hundreds of millions for the party, donated a multi million Naira media center to the national HQ and participated in all affairs of the party he was invited to; his pay back was straight forward and clear.
“The Rivers State PDP does not want Tonye Princewill to even contest. If this decision is true, it marks a new low in our state’s politics. Will confirm for sure later today, but our sources are pretty reliable.
“After consultations into the early hours with his think tank and a few of his political associates, Prince Tonye Princewill has decided to let the public determine his next move. The reasonable options are to:
“Appeal the committee’s decision, Quit politics altogether, Stay in the PDP even though they say he is not one of them, or Go to another party (not APC) and run.
“While he ponders on these four options, Prince Tonye wants to restate that his commitment to the Goodluck Jonathan re-election is still strong. PDP ticket or not.
“The writing is on the wall. This is a sad day for internal democracy. But the voice of the people will always be loudest.”
