Uche Nwosu, the Son-in-law of Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, disgruntled over the outcome of the Imo All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary, on Tuesday formally announced his defection to the Action Alliance, AA.
Mr. Nwosu made the announcement at Sam the Mbakwe International Cargo Airport, Owerri shortly after his arrival from Abuja, saying “injustice, impunity, and lack of respect for party’s constitution” made him dump the ruling party.
The former chief of staff to Governor Okorocha, who lost the APC governorship ticket to Senator Hope Uzodinma, boasted that he would emerge the next Governor of the state in 2019.
He said, “We are going to work with APC to deliver Imo State to President Muhammadu Buhari.
“We will deliver Governor Rochas Okorocha as senator because Action Alliance has no senatorial candidate in Orlu zone.
“I have no problem with President Muhammadu Buhari. My headache is the National Chairman of APC.
“It is a divine project and we are ready for the election. It is an inter-party marriage between AA and APC in Imo State.
“We will work with APC to deliver President Muhammadu Buhari, Governor Rochas Okorocha, myself and all our candidates.”
