The national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Friday told newsmen in Abuja that Governor Rochas Okorocha loathe him only because he refused to assist him in his plan to create a “political dynasty in Imo state in which he will be the APC Senatorial candidate and his son in-law, Uche Nwosu, the governorship candidate.”
Mr. Oshiomhole said this when he briefed journalists about the state of affairs of the party in Rivers, Ogun and Imo states following issues arising from the party’s congresses and governorship primaries.
He confirmed again that Sen. Hope Uzodinma, who emerged from the primaries conducted by the Gulak committee, remains the 2019 APC governorship candidate for the state.
The APC national chairman said, “What I have not been able to do for Gov. Okorocha is to assist him with the instrument of APC, even as that will border on abuse of power on my side.
“And I do not have such powers to help him to create Rochas Okorocha political dynasty in Imo state in which he will be the APC Senatorial candidate and his son in-law, Uche Nwosu, the governorship candidate.
“I am convinced that this is where many of my friend governors tend not to understand me.
“If there is conflict between the known interest of the great people of Imo who have reposed confidence in us by voting us to power as they did in 2015, I will resist.
“I will resist every unlawful pressure to undermine the wishes of the good people of Imo and at this stage, the wishes of APC members in Imo who do not want a political dynasty, by the way they have voted.”
