2019: Okorocha vows to support son-in-law for Imo governorship race

Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha, has vowed to back his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, if he shows interest in the 2019 governorship race.

Nwosu is currently the Chief of Staff to the governor.

According to Sam Onwuemeodo, the governor’s chief press secretary, Okorocha said this on Monday when he received leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from Owerri municipal council.

The governor was quoted as saying: “Uche Nwosu is hardworking, and never gets tired. I have checked him in and out, I have not found him wanting,”

“He is a very humble young man. Not proud. Not arrogant. So, power won’t enter his head.

“In spite of the position he occupies, you can’t see him quarrelling with anybody or maltreating anybody. He does not segregate anybody, whether from Orlu or Owerri or Okigwe zone. He relates with people enviously.”

On whether Nwosu is from the zone that ought to produce the next governor, Okorocha said: “Zoning does not put food on the table of anybody. What the state wants is Imo governor and not Owerri zone or Orlu zone or Okigwe zone governor.

“The young man is a team player who does not use his office to molest anybody. He has the qualities of a good leader. If he says he will run for governor, I will support him.”
