Obuah Slams Princewill Over Comments Against Wike

Published

on

The Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), has slammed a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Prince Tonye Princewill over his recent comments against Governor Nyesom Wike.
The State PDP Chairman, Bro. Felix Obuah in a statement by his media, aide, Jerry Needam said that despite Princewill’s experiences as a failed politician, he was yet to learn from history.
Obuah who was reacting to a recent media interview granted by the APC chieftain described the comments as totally uncalled for.
Obuah further said that the only thing discernible in the said media interview was that Princewill desperately tried to mend fences with his former political foe and Transportation Minister, Rotimi Amaechi who he alleged (Princewill) never forgave for denying him the APC governorship ticket in 2015.
Dismissing Princewill’s self-contradictory innsinuations and incitements, the PDP chairrman wondered how Amaechi could be an extreme democrat as noted by Princewill and at the sametime being the cause of the APC’s loss of the 2019 election in the State because of his actions, earning him numerous enemies both at the state and federal levels of their party.
The statement reads, “Also denying the imposition of Tonye Cole on the APC as the remote cause of the woes of the party in Rivers State, Tonye Princewill overtly enmeshed in self-adulation admitted being severally, a victim of the popular will unjustly reversed, indirectly referring to the encounter with Rotimi Amaechi, his extreme democrat in 2015”.
Obuah also said, Princewill, deluded by his desperation to warm himself back to his new ‘hero’, Rotimi Amaechi, threw caution to the wind by describing the Executive Governor of the State, Chief Barr. Nyesom Wike in the most derogatory terms and calling the election that brought him to office a sham and ‘INEC aided’, not minding the sub-judicial implications of his utterances.
“Rather than living on political back-stabbing and mischief-making to climb to the top, Tonye Princewill, should tap from the wisdom of Governor Wike and his other superiors and most significantly, do away with political harlotry that sacked him from the good books of his mentors like former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Bola Tinubu among others.
“It is only then he (Princewill) can be trusted by his kinsmen and by extension, the Rivers people before considering him for any elective or responsible position,” Bro Obuah stated.

“All hands must be on deck. Our people should not only cast their votes for the candidate of their choice, but also wait behind and insist that the process goes on without corruption or disruption,” he said.
Okafor urged the electorate to resist vote buying and selling to ensure a successful and credible election.

“It is a minute trading that gives away our four years of freedom from various ills and vices. We must resist it, “ he said.
Okafor also urged residents not to be distracted by the gale of defections among politicians in the state.
“Most of the defection is about personal interest and materialism and not in the interest of the masses or the development of the state,” he said.
