Uche Nwosu, the son-in-law to the Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has claimed he is the most suitable candidate to take over the governorship position of the state in 2019 despite rebuttal from different groups in the state.
Mr. Uche, who is also the Chief of Staff to the Imo State Governor, said on Sunday that he was anointed by God just like David in the bible to serve the people.
“David in the bible, when he was about to be anointed, the first person came, second, third and last but God said no, David never aspired to be a king of Israel, David was a small boy but God made him king.
“Let me tell you nobody can say no, when God Almighty says yes. We believe in God and whatever God decides is what all of us will accept,” he said.
Recall that on March 4, Okorocha had in a statement said the All Progressive Congress (APC) officials and leaders from 24 out of the 27 local governments in the state have already endorsed his son-in-law for the 2019 Imo gubernatorial race.
“We say this for posterity sake. Imo people, including youths, students, men and women have “thrown their unalloyed support behind” the youthful Chief of Staff, Uche Nwosu, for the 2019 governorship in the state.”
“With APC officials and leaders from 24 out of the 27 local governments in the state having already endorsed him for the 2019 Imo guber,” Okorocha had said.
While reacting to the governor’s statement, a faction of the APC in the state kicked against what they described as the “anointment of his son-in-law” as the party’s gubernatorial candidate in the state ahead of 2019.
The group had also warned that the Imo APC was headed to shameful, abysmal and colossal failure in the 2019 general elections if due progressive is not followed in the selection of the party’s flagbearer.
The group warned Okorocha to desist from indiscriminate and wanton anointment of his son-in-law as the state APC gubernatorial party flagbearer.
