Okorocha turns Imo governorship seat ‘family affair’ as he insists son-in-law will be governor
Imo state Governor Rochas Okorocha has insisted that his son-in-law will be the next governor of the state. Uche Nwosu is currently married to Okorocha’s daughter who is the chief of staff to the governor.
In a press statement made available to newsmen in Owerri on Sunday was quoted as saying Nwosu is a child of destiny and no amount of pressure or blackmail would make him not to rule Imo state come 2019.
“This time, it is Uche Nwosu because they have seen that he is the man for 2019 with God on our side. And no amount of blackmail or tricks would change the plan of God on the young man to govern the state. It takes someone alive in the things of the spirit to know that Uche Nwosu is a ‘child of destiny.’ He has the divine mark; and anyone fighting him is fighting his God. And no one can battle with God.
However, we say this for posterity. 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. He has become the subject-matter as long as that issue is concerned, with APC officials and leaders from 24 out of the 27 local governments in the state having already endorsed him for 2019,” he said.
