The son-in-law to the Imo State Governor, Uche Nwosu, has vowed that the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the State, Senator Hope Uzodinma, will not be governor of the state come 2019.
He also said that he has not dumped the APC as speculated, expressing hope that he will be announced the governorship candidate.
Nwosu also berated the National Chairman of the ruling party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, saying that the former Governor of Edo State did not respect the rule of law and constitution of the APC.
Nwosu, a former Chief of Staff to Governor Okorocha, spoke to his followers after his arrival from Abuja on Tuesday, declaring that he was the lawful governorship candidate of the APC in the State.
He declared, “I am the lawful governorship candidate of the APC in Imo state. Our national chairman did not respect the rule of law and the constitution of our party by substituting senator Hope Uzodinma’s name for mine.
“The records are very clear. I won the first primary election on October 2. I also won the second primary held on October 6. The records are there. The police, INEC and DSS reports affirm my victories.
“It is only for a matter of time. We will get justice in court. My name shall be on the ballot. I shall be announced as the APC governorship candidate in Imo state. Hope Uzodinma won’t be governor.”
“There is no truth in the rumour that I have dumped the APC for Democratic Alternative. I am still in APC. I am a founding member of the ruling party. I won the ticket of the party and I shall lead the APC to victory in Imo state in 2019.”
