LAGOS: RIVERS State’s People’s Democratic Party (PDP) governorship hopeful, Prince Tonye Princewill, has returned to the country and ready to resume his campaign.
According to his spokesperson, Wabiye Idoniboyeobu, the tour to the Diaspora was strategic and successful.
“From a very vigorous and successful recruitment/ training of campaign volunteers to a very warm Diaspora engagement; his campaign team has gradually gathered all its ammunition for a well-coordinated campaign,” said Idoniboyeobu.
Idoniboyeobu said the Diaspora engagement was a successful one and included a Town Hall Meeting with Nigerians and interviews with foreign media.
“His One point agenda, which is Job Creation, needs a push from forces outside Nigeria to actually work. That is His top priority. Also his politics and campaign activities over the years have evidently been funded largely by his friends and allies in Diaspora. The better days of his life started outside the shores of Nigeria, so his closest friends, allies and family, obviously are out there and have to be informed and consulted,” said Idoniboyeobu.
The official meanwhile said the recruitment of campaign volunteers was a huge success with thousands signing in. The largest response is said to have come from the Ogoni, Etche, Kalabari and Ahoada areas of the state.
Over 3000 volunteers have been registered and are currently undergoing training for a vigorous, issue based, non-violent, door to door campaign.
“All this will immediately usher in a never seen before community tour of Rivers State. Princewill is not coming to make promises, but to make public his well thought and well researched solution to problems that have already been identified,” said Idoniboyeobu.
