Okorocha’s Son-in-law & Chief of Staff-Imo State Govt, Uche Nwosu Denies Contesting for Governorship in 2019
In order to put to rest the disturbing speculations that Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha wants to succeed himself in office as Governor for a third term riding on the back of his Son-in-law, and chief of staff, Uche Nwosu, a situation which has been raising political dust and capable of destroying the peaceful socio-political atmosphere enjoyed in Imo of recent.
The youthful and pragmatic Chief of Staff, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu has openly distanced himself from the political calculations which is currently heating up Imo polity.
The Nkwerre local government born, former Commissioner for lands, Survey and urban planning, stated that "he has not told anybody that he is running for Governor in 2019, asking why people are wasting their energy discussing issues that are better left for Imo electorates in 2019" .
Stating that, "it's only Imo voters that will decide who governs them come 2019, that no single individual has the capacity to impose governor on Ndi-Imo".
The former director of Transport, students union government, Imo State University, equally admonished Imolites to take the advantage provided by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, at the ongoing registration of voters card exercise to ensure that their family members or wards who did not register or vote in the previous election due to non possession of voters card, to do the needful by going out to register at their respective INEC wards, especially those who recently returned to Imo State and those who were not up to 18yrs during the last voters exercise, instead of indulging in cheap gossip or name calling.
He made the remarks in a short press statement monitored by Ifeanyicy.com, as was posted in his official Facebook page,which reads:
"Why heating up the polity? Am I a threat to anybody? Have I told anybody that am running for Governor? Why do we spend our energy discussing issues which our votes can give us come 2019?
Imolites are too educated and will make their choice come May 29th 2019. "Biko,umunnem" let's hold our peace, no single individual can impose a governor on "ndi imo".The INEC continuous voters' registration exercise is on going let's go and register instead of name-calling. Dalau kwanu."
