2019: Imo Assembly Endorses Okorocha’s Son-In-Law As Next Governor



rochas okorocha

The Imo State House of Assembly has endorsed Governor Rochas Okorocha ’s son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, to take over from Okorocha in 2019.

Nwosu is currently serving as the Chief of Staff to the governor.

The House Committee Chairman on Petroleum, Imo State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission and Niger Delta Development Commission, Henry Ezediaro, disclosed this when he addressed newsmen in Owerri, the state capital on Saturday.

He said Nwosu was the most qualified to succeed Okorocha.

According to Ezediaro, the decision to endorse Nwosu was reached after the majority of the state’s lawmakers declared him the best to run for the position.


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.

    A House Member bowing to and endorsing an appointee who has not even won a Councillorship seat before is the high point of a political witchcraft.
