Endorsement Of My Son-In-Law VERY Democratic- Rochas Okorocha

Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha has said the endorsement of his Chief of Staff, Uche Nwosu, for the governorship in 2019, is not undemocratic.

According Okorocha, the action is in order as it does not breach the constitution of the All Progressives Congress (APC) or the Electoral Act.

A statement by his Chief Press Secretary,  Sam Onwuemeodo, said:  “For the avoidance of doubt, Uche Nwosu’s endorsement for the 2019 governorship by local governments, groups and individuals, cannot be adjudged undemocratic as it does not  contravene any known law or ordinance.

“Endorsement is a public statement or action showing support of something or somebody. It has been part of our democracy and it is surprising that some people have been losing sleep over the several endorsements the young Nwosu has been getting. The difference is that his own endorsement is like a revolution, and almost all the other aspirants are feeling threatened.

“We have come up with this explanation following the meeting held at Imerienwe in Ngor-Okpala counicl by coordinators of one of the governorship aspirants, and at the instance of one of them, Chief T.O. Ekechi.

“They claimed to be operating under the aegis of APC Restoration Coalition, and they did that to deceive the weary public, when they  should have endorsed their own candidate.

“They should follow events in other states and do their political research. Endorsement has been there. They should also ask their candidate to withdraw if he is unpopular to the extent of attracting people to endorse him. Uche Nwosu is the man. This is his time and nobody should envy him.”
