A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, Tonye Princewill, has predicted that 2023 elections in Rivers State would be peaceful, unlike previous polls marred by violence and crises.
Princewill, however, said the only way the state could witness peace was when major political actors speak peace, especially the state governor, Nyesom Wike, and his predecessor, Chibuike Amaechi.
He made this known in Port Harcourt, adding that in recent times, the APC leader in the state, Chibuike Amaechi, has been calm, focusing on his assignments from the Federal Government as his priority.
“Rivers State government has a very loud voice; whatever it says travels far. So our job is to ensure that someone who speaks sense occupies the Brick House, so when he speaks, he preaches peace and not negative and violent words”, he said.
He expressed optimism that an APC government that would speak the language of peace and unity would occupy the number one seat in the state come 2023.
Princewill maintained that Amaechi was an asset to the nation, describing him as a good listener, who does not joke with advice and criticism.
According to him, Amaechi remains the best man to lead the nation out of its numerous challenges.
On the Electoral Act, he said the President would sign the Electoral Act but should be given more time.
