Rivers 2015 Election, My Position - Princewill

Prince Tonye Princewill is the governorship candidate of the Labour Party, LP, in Rivers State.

After a closed door meeting with all my local government representatives and an extended stakeholder engagement within my party, it is our official position that the senate and house of representative elections conducted on the 28th of March where largely neither free nor fair and were not in accordance with laid down electoral procedures. We will therefore be rejecting a large number of the national assembly results we participated in. The evidence to buttress the tribunal cases is now being collated and a team of 5 SANs, co-ordinated by the Rivers State party chairman, Prince Favour Reuben is being deployed to ensure we secure justice.


Our national assembly candidates trusted that INEC and the security agencies would protect them and provide for them a level playing field, but it was a surprise to see that not only did they not do so, their processes and equipment left them exposed, disenfranchised and ultimately short changed with results that clearly did not reflect the will of their people. As law abiding citizens, we have vowed to challenge, to the end, the injustices meted out to us through legal means and have no doubt that in the end, justice will prevail.

As many now know, our party supported the PDP candidate for President and so we have no doubt, his overwhelming victory in Rivers state is inevitable. We demonstrated our political maturity in working with PDP, other parties and indeed even APC faithful in voting for him in a peaceful and orderly fashion. Aside from being our son, we believe he has not only done well, he has earned all our support. We only pray that our collective efforts are enough to lead him on to a national victory. For us it was never about the party, it was always about the person.

I would like to add that it is particularly ironic to find ourselves in the same boat as the leadership of the APC in the Rivers state, complaining about the conduct of an election when the same actors in the APC have been the same executors of similar injustices in the past. "He without sin should cast the first stone." What goes around clearly comes around and I hope this will serve as a lesson for us all, including the PDP. In the end, power is simply transient and there are powers above powers. Justice comes in many forms.

Signed

Prince Tonye T.J.T Princewill

  11. Right now that I am writing this, PDP AGENTS have stopped and disrupted the announcement of the remaining result of the election when they realize that BUhari has won 95% of the election with over 3 million votes leading.

    So, Papa OBJ is right. JONATHAN is truly GBABGBO of Ivory Coast.
    This is exactly how Ghagbo started the shit that led to his problems.

    Now I also heard that Africandy, one IGBO bitch is telling people not to say SAI BUHARI except they are from the north.. This shows that Prof Wole Soyinka has also been proved right when he stated that the people that will vote for JONATHAN are being driven by ethnicity and not the love of the country.

    Having inflated all the results from South east and rigged all the elections in the SS, Buhari is still leading by 3million votes.

    Why can't they just accept the result and be fair to Buhari?
    Why try to cheat Buhari out?
    Why are causing problems for our country?

    When people call IGBOS, enemy of progress, you all can see why now.
    The most painful thing is that our SS people have joined them to become "ENEMY OF PROGRESS.

    My advice is that Buhari should hold a world conference and declare himself president elect before Jonathan.

    ANYONE READING ME, PLEASE PASS IT ON TO THE HANDLERS OF BUHARI THAT BUHARI SHOULD IMMEDIATELY DECLARE HIMSELF PRESIDENT ELECT. THE WHOLE WORLD IS BEHIND HIM. ALL HIS SUPPORTERS ARE BEHIND HIM.

  13. News update from World news:

    Having collated results from 33 out of 36 states in Nigeria, Buhari is now leading by 14 million votes.

    This is a defining moment for our country.

    WE HAVE TAKEN OUR COUNTRY BACK FROM LOOTERS AND CONFIRMED REPRESENTATIVES OF ENEMIES OF PROGRESS.

    I AM SO HAPPY. NO MORE SEEING VOODOO LADY WEARING VOODOO HEADGEAR WITH VOODOO ECONOMIC POLICY BEING DICTATED BY THE VOODOO WORLD BANK.

    THE VOODOO LADY' POLICY OF PUTTING US INTO BIG DEBTS AND FORCING US TO PAY BACK THE DEBTS WITH BIG INTEREST WHILE FALSEFULLY CLAIMING THAT OUR ECONOMY IS GROWING IS FINALLY COMING TO AN END

    NOW, Buhari must form a government of national unity with every Nigerian being represented.
    The only criteria used must be intelligence, honesty and integrity and not your tribal orientation or your ability to loot.

    SAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII BUHARIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII.

    1. @oluatlanta is stating the truth and you are spewing trash.

      By stating the truth, he is a bigot? How?
      Did olu ask Afrocandy to make the idiotic statement?
      Was it oluatlanta that inflated all the election result from the south east to favour your Jonathan?
      Did olu ask the igbos to vote no one but Jona?.
      Did olu ask the south east igbo people to just vote jonathan just becos he is half IGBO without considering Jonathan' track record and thereby attempting to slow down our progress?
      All igbo nollywood people, olu asked them to stand behind Ebeleme, Abi?


      Can you categorically point to what is making you think olu is a bigot from what he wrote above? If you cannot,kindly forever shut your trap becos you are all failures and are all enemies of our progress.

      Thank you for your support. Haters will always and they will die hating.
      Thanks once again.


      NEWS FLASH:-------------

      Gov Fayose of Ekiti state has congratulated President-elect Buhari and Gov Fayose is also asking everyone to be calm and take the result as what God wanted for Nigeria.

      Gov Fayose is now wishing Buhari long life and prosperity with a successful tenure as the NEWLY elected president of Nigeria.

      Now, we Nigerians are all waiting for out-going president Ebeleme Jonathan to concede and get over with.

      We wish him and his wife good luck.
      We wish him long life as he has enough shoes to last him till death now.
      Hopefully those shoes are all water proof and they will be able to survive the terrains of the creeks where President Jonathan will be retiring to.

  23. This Tonye is a true patriot. Check his records and see the lives he has touched over the years; without a political office. These are the kind of people we need in power.
