Ex rivers governor dumps APC

A former governorship candidate in Rivers State, Tonye Princewill, has dumped the All Progressives Congress, citing the Muslim-Muslim ticket for the presidential election in 2023.

 

The party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, had picked former Governor of Borno State, Senator Kashim Shettima, as his running mate.

 

Princewill, a philanthropist, chieftain of the APC, and an ally to the former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, contested the governorship position in the state under the Labour Party in 2015.

 

His resignation was contained in a letter he addressed to the Chairman of the APC in his ward, Tahhed Royal Ward in Buguma, Asar Toru Local Government Area, dated July 12, 2022.

 

Princewill, while expressing his dismay over the choice of the party in fielding a Muslim-Muslim ticket said he could not argue for equity in his state and defend inequality in the country.
