Port Harcourt - The Princewill Campaign Organization explained Prince Tonye Princewill’s choice of Ken Nwinekina Saronwiyo as his running mate for the upcoming gubernatorial elections.

According to Princewill’s Personal Assistant on Media and Publicity, Wabiye Idoniboye-Obu, the choice came after months of rigorous consultations.

“It has been known to all, that Prince Tonye kept his search light firmly on the Ogoni region of Rivers State. This has been due to the relative economic and political neglect of the region when compared to their relevance and importance,” said Idoniboye-Obu.

Idoniboye-Obu said Saronwiyo, who turns 65 on Sunday, was a well respected Ogoni son recommended by a cross section of stakeholders in the region.

“From traditional rulers to men, women and youth leaders; this name kept resounding as the best man for the job. His history has been x –rayed and we are pleased to inform you that he is a Man with sound intellect and uncompromising passion for his people. This man has earned his title as a people’s person and a strong grass root mobilizer.”

A certified United Nations Ambassador of Peace, Saronwiyo was elected the Khana/ Oyigbo, Social Democratic Party (SDP) Chairman in 1991 and gradually grew to be a founding member of the People’s Democratic Party in 1998.

He holds a number of qualifications and is a member of the Institute of Management Specialists – London and also a member of the Institute of Journalists – London.
