0
Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha has picked APC’s
governorship ticket few hours after losing his bid for the All Progressives
Congress’ presidential ticket in Lagos.
His son-in-law and Commissioner for Lands and Urban
Planning, Chief Uche Nwosu, who was said to have been adopted as the governorship
candidate, announced his withdrawal from the race after Okorocha lost the
presidential bid.
Speaking before the ratification of Okorocha’s candidature,
the Chairman of the Electoral Committee, Mr. John Alamba said: ”A few days ago,
we gathered here to elect Chief Nwosu as the APC governorship candidate, but I
was in Lagos when I learnt that the candidate had resigned on personal grounds.
We are gathered here today to ratify Governor Okorocha as the party’s
governorship candidate”. Nwosu said “party’s interest supersedes personal
ambition”, and enjoined members to give same support and solidarity to
Okorocha.
