He said, “After meeting with the members of the House of Assembly, we, irrespective of party affiliations, have endorsed Ugwumba Uche Nwosu. We urge him to contest the poll. If he does, we will support him to be the governor in 2019.

“On behalf of the lawmakers, we want to use this medium to appeal to the governor and thank him for his free education policy in the state, but without Uche Nwosu, the policy may die and that is why we want him to continue from where he will stop.”

He added, “The house is not in crisis, we just disagreed on some issues.”

    Let us wait till 2019 and see if Imo people are fools. Okorocha’s Ogboni fraternity cult must be broken and any other person coming in his stead shall follow suit.

    This is the only way to grab power from APC in Imo state by any opportunistics .We are not foolish enough to allow such to happen in my dear State.owelle In-law as Governor of Imo state to continue the legacy of erecting statues. Meanwhile power has to rotate this time .Either Owerri Zone or Okigwe Zone.

  8. Onyemaechi Tony says:

    Okoroawusa & the state assembly aren’t the the IMO Citizens to decide who becomes the next Governor.
    However, no rule of the law in the animal kingdom but the wrath of GOD almighty shall befall on u all for all the mass murder, remember Nebuchadnezzar & many more dictators of the old.
