A former Governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Rivers State, Prince Tonye Princewill, has described Nigeria as a country that is slowly going astray despite attaining the ripe age of 62 years of independence.
Princewill said he would rather not use language that is incendiary about the country but that “Nigeria as I see it, is a big ship that is slowly going astray. It’s drifting. And it is my opinion that February 2023 is really going to be the last opportunity to redefine a new future for ourselves”.
”It will take a lot of very smart people who are ready to do a lot of very hard work, for us to see a Nigeria that we can be proud of in our lifetimes. If we get it right, we will see the signs before our next October 1st”.
He noted that the peace accord signed by the presidential candidates of the various political parties a few days ago is nothing but a symbolic gesture.
On whether he contemplates joining another political party after his exit from the APC, Tonye Princewill said he was yet to join any party since he resigned from the APC. “I have not joined any party since I resigned from the APC and I’m not in a rush to do so either”
