PRINCEWILL 5Princewill, Labour Party Governorship candidate in the 2015 elections resigns

The Labour Party Governorship candidate in the 2015 elections Prince Tonye Princewill has resigned his membership of the party.

Mr. Princewill in a statement made available to NF-Reports said, “ All my life has been about trying to make a difference, to not be the type of Nigerian who sits and watches the status quo go by, complaining, protesting and analyzing, while doing nothing about it, claiming helplessness as an excuse for inaction.”

Continuing, he said “Unlike many of my good friends who avoid politics, I can’t. Too many good Nigerians need people who can speak up for them. God did not give us a big voice or the ability to walk in and out of powerful rooms just to follow my own personal agenda and stay in my own comfort zone. He gave me a voice to speak. And so I must. And so I will. Voices generally make the most impact when in politics.”

The rest of the statement reads: “Unfortunately I cannot do this from within the Labour Party for two main reasons. First, in spite of the many good men and women who carry their membership card, the current leadership style and track record negate the kind of progress Nigerians and I urgently need. Secondly, the persistent inability of the Labour unions to wake up politically means meaningful strides cannot be made in a divided Labour movement blissfully unaware of its strength.

“It is on that basis, that I now tender my resignation as a member of the Labour Party, effective immediately. I no longer wish to seek Executive office but I will remain vocal in the political space and effectively – politically. To do this, I will have to leave, but I wish the party well in all its endeavours. I want to close with a quote.”

“Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it.”
