This is following the Governor Okorocha's endorsement of his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu for Governor of Imo in 2019.
This is following the Governor’s endorsement of his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu for Governor of Imo in 2019.
Okorocha reportedly said that he will give Nwosu, who is his Chief Editor of staff, his full support.
In a swift reaction, the Imo PDP spokesman, Damian Opara said that Imo people will not allow Okorocha rule ‘by proxy’.
Opara also warned the people of Imo state not to vote for Okorocha’s sonin-law, adding that he is a chip of the old block.
He said “It has been on the air since Monday that Governor Okorocha has endorsed his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, to take over from him in 2019 as the Governor of Imo State.
“For us in PDP, we are not afraid of this seeming caricature of governance because we know we are taking over in the next election, but what has continued to amaze us is why Okorocha wants to turn Imo State into a family business.
“The endorsement of his son-in-law is a confirmation of the fact that Okorocha is taking his luck too far, having abused the privilege Imolites gave to him when he was elected governor.
“The question we are asking is; what is the ground for this endorsement? Is it the fact that he has done so well or what has Rochas’ family offered to Imo State?
“Again, we reiterate our stand that we’re not afraid, but we want to warn Imolites to beware of whoever Okorocha is bringing on board because it is going to be the same disaster.”
Governor Rochas Okorocha recently told Imo residents that it is better to be an armed robber than to smoke Indian hemp.
Okorocha said this to buttress the harmful effect of Indian hemp, and the fact that it has been outlawed in Imo state.
Governor Okorocha drew the fury of some Nigerians when he erected a statue in honour of the former President Jacob Zuma of South Africa
Zuma resigned as President on February 14, 2018, following pressure from his party, African National Congress (ANC) to step-down.
The former President has severally been accused of corruption.
