Okorocha’s Son-In-Law Returns To APC After Failed Governorship Ambition
Former governor Rochas Okorocha’s son-in-law Uche Nwosu, has returned to the All Progressives Congress (APC) after his political voyage to the Action Alliance (AA) under which he failed to win the governorship seat of Imo state in the last general elections.
Nwosu had defected from the APC to AA after failing to clinch the party’s governorship ticket ahead of the state’s last governorship election in 2019.
He had lost the election to the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Emeka Ihedioha, despite defecting to AA.
A statement issued in Owerri on Friday by APC’s publicity secretary in the state, Jones Onwuasoanya, said Nwosu had returned and re-registered as a member of the party.
Onwuasoanya said Nwosu and his supporters were welcomed at his Eziama Obaire ward in the state.
“His Excellency Ugwumba Uche Nwosu has re-registered at his Eziama-Obaire ward and has been received back into the Party at the LGA and State levels.
“His Excellency Ugwumba Uche Nwosu returned to the Party with his numerous supporters across the 305 wards in the State, and these valuable party members have been welcomed back into the party and fully reabsorbed.
“The Party is hopeful that other critical leaders of our party from across the State, who left the party due to one reason or the other, will soon rejoin the party, even as we look forward with hope to the Supreme Court judgement on the Imo governorship election.
“We also urge members of our party at all levels not to lend themselves as tools of destabilization against our party, but to key into the new spirit of reconciliation and healing ongoing in our party across the nation.
“We must however not fail to bring the law to bear on anyone or group of people found to have willfully constituted himself or themselves to a nuisance and a clog to cohesion, progress and discipline in our party,” he said.
