The Imo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has affirmed its plan to back the governorship candidate recognised by the party’s National Working Committee (NWC), Senator Hope Uzodinma, in the February 2019 poll.
The Party Chairman in the state, Dan Nwafor, made this known to reporters at the national secretariat of the party in Abuja. The NWC is headed by the National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
Reports had said the son-in-law to incumbent governor Rochas Okorocha, Mr. Uche Nwosu, who is the governor’s chosen aspirant, had picked the governorship ticket of the Action Alliance (AA).
There were also reports that 19 legislators in the state House of Assembly had decamped to the Action Alliance (AA).
But the state party chairman, who was flanked by the party’s secretary and women leader in the state, said the party was intact and moving ahead.
The Chairman said, “Mr President and other APC candidates will win election in Imo State. I stand with the APC on this matter. I will work for my party and I’m committed to my party.”
“Uche Nwosu, as I said earlier, was the foremost governorship aspirant of the party and due to irreconcilable differences, he felt he should pursue his ambition elsewhere. As a state party chairman, I am sad because I will need all my governorship aspirants to be in the party but I cannot stop him.
“If he had decided to choose his political path, I will wish him well but I will work for my party and my party will win. That is where I stand. Everybody planning to run for the governorship seat in Imo State in one way or the other is close to me.”
