Prince Tonye Princewill who was one of the aspirants booted out of the race has expressed his appreciation to the National Working Committee for lifting the disqualification, adding that the party need to do more.

Princewill had days ago in a report published by NAIJA CENTER NEWS, accused the NWC for listening to Chief Nyesom Wike, who he said advised the party to disqualify his threats.

Princewill and others were disqualified on the ground that they were not full time members of the party.

Responding to the new development, Princewill said ” Today the National Working Committee of my party the PDP, proved that there is still hope for the “little guy” in Nigeria. The suspicious disqualification and open betrayal of myself and other key members of the party resulting from a kangaroo screening was cancelled. This is a victory for democracy and a warning to politicians that politics in Nigeria can not be business as usual. I have finally been cleared to partake in the PDP guber primaries. Thank you for you prayers. They worked. He listened. But PDP needs to do more.

Now this screening chapter is closed, we need to make sure that the 419 kangaroo congresses for Rivers State also suffer the same fate. We have no clear & credible delegates list to decide our candidates from the house of assembly to the National Assembly to Governor. Our prayers have brought us this far. God bless all of you for your support. Keep on praying and watch destiny take its course. Money is not everything. In the battle for Rivers state, David will always win Goliath”
