LP gub candidate says will make Rivers Dubai of Africa


PORT HARCOURT – Tonye Princewill, the governorship candidate of the Labour Party in Rivers, said on Tuesday that his administration would aim at making the state the Dubai of Africa.
Princewill told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Port Harcourt that if elected, he would achieve the objective with adequate security in place and in a peaceful environment.
“My administration will work with security agencies to ensure adequate security in the state.
“We will create a ring of steel in the state to make it impossible for trouble makers to penetrate.
“My focus is to make Rivers like the Dubai of Africa and if we should achieve this, we will need peace and security,’’ he said.[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”10″]
Princewill said security was fundamental for the development of the state and that his administration would adopt the carrot and stick approach to tackle security issues among youths.
“The carrot option is that if you are not pursuing a life of violence, here is an alternative and if you are pursuing violence in spite of the alternative, here are the consequences,’’ he said.
The candidate said his administration would create capacities to create jobs to tackle insecurity in the state.[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”10″]

“Unless you have the capacity to produce jobs, you cannot address the issues of security, and unless you can address the issues of security, you will not be able to create jobs.
According to Princewill, the most important thing for any administration is to have the capacity to produce jobs and demonstrate the will to do so.
He said that if elected, his administration would adopt a collaborative approach and do an interagency relationship to address security issues.[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”10″]
He added that there should be synergy between the government and security agencies to tackle security challenges. (NAN)
