Governor Okorocha

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has finally admitted what has been an open secret that he is plotting to install his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu as the next governor.

A press statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Sam Onwuemeodo, quoted Okorocha to have said that despite perceived opposition across the state, he would support Nwosu to be governor in 2019 if he decides to contest.

Mr. Okorocha spoke when leaders of the All Progressives Congress from Owerri Municipal Council visited him on Monday, the statement said.

According to Onwumeodo, the APC leaders’ visit, Onwuemeodo was to urge Okorocha to encourage Nwosu, who is currently the governor’s chief of staff, to become the next governor.

He is married to Okorocha’s first daughter, Ulomma

The statement quoted Okorocha as saying, “Uche Nwosu is hardworking, and never gets tired.

“He is a very humble young man. Not proud. Not arrogant. So, power won’t enter his head.

“In spite of the position he occupies, you can’t see him quarreling with anybody or maltreating anybody.

“He does not segregate anybody, whether from Orlu or Owerri or Okigwe zone. He relates with people enviously.”

He added, “I have checked him in and out, I have not found him wanting.

“What the state wants is Imo governor and not Owerri Zone or Orlu Zone or Okigwe Zone governor. Zoning does not put food on the table of anybody.

“The young man is a team player who does not use his office to molest anybody. He has the qualities of a good leader. If he says he will run for governor, I will support him.”
