The people of Imo State and other 2019 gubernatorial aspirants in the state have been mocked by the out –going Governor, Rochas Okorocha, who has insisted that it’s only his son in-law that can win the governorship election come 2019.
He said Uche Nwosu is the only eligible candidate for the Imo APC election adding that Senator Hope Uzodinma has already lost the battle.
According to Okorocha, only his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, can clinch the governorship seat in the state adding that other gubernatorial candidates in the state doesn’t have what it takes to win the Imo state governorship seat.
Speaking in Owerri, on Tuesday, October 23, the governor said the tussle between Nwosu and Senator Hope Uzodinma is already a won battle.
Okorocha represented by his chief press secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, said: “It is only Uche Nwosu who can win Imo for APC in 2019. Any other person making such claim outside the Rescue Mission family is a liar”, he added.
“We defeated an incumbent governor, Chief Ikedi Ohakim of PDP extraction in 2011. He however maintained that Imo people, especially APC members in the state would continue to respect the Judiciary and its decisions. The governor also urged members of the party in the state to remain united and continue to work-hard for the party,” Onwuemeodo said.
