Okorocha’s in-law slams Oshiomhole: You’re not God

The former Chief of Staff of Imo state and governorship hopeful, Uche Nwosu, has berated the National chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole, stating that the former governor of Edo state lacks integrity to lead the party.

Nwosu, who is a son-in-law of the incumbent governor, Rochas Okorocha was reacting to the statement of Oshiomhole after his (Nwosu) name was dropped for Senator Hope Uzodinma as the governorship candidate of APC in Imo state.

“The insinuation by the National Chairman that my ambition suffered setback because of the ambition of the Governor Rochas Okorocha is not true. My name is Ugwumba Uche Nwosu and not Rochas Okorocha. I am from Nkwerre Local Government Area, while he is from Ideato South LGA; there are two different things, if he has ambition to run for Senate and I have ambition to run for governor, so it doesn’t tally at all.

“After all Oshiomhole’s son is a member of the Edo State House of Assembly, whom he nominated and he is the Chairman of the party and he is saying that Okorocha’s Senatorial ambition scuttled my governorship, he is a man that is supposed to  speak rightly and not deceive the people on air. I saw him on the television when he was talking from both sides of his mouth, it is a pity that APC could have such a man as its National Chairman, I condemn his action and it is not acceptable”.

“The same Ibrahim Agbabiaka Committee that conducted the governorship primary that Oshiomole is referring to as purported, is still the same Committee that conducted the National and State Assembly primaries, so how can you jettison the report of that same Committee.

Nwosu urged his supporters to remain steadfast.

“We are not deterred, I am still in the race, if  Oshiomhole thinks that he is a tin god at the secretariat that he can truncate people’s ambition, then my answer to him is that he is not God, he cannot stop my ambition, he cannot stop a divine mandate, he cannot stop the mandate of the people.

“I want to assure my teeming supporters that we are on the right course, nothing can stop us, not even Oshiomhole. I am the right candidate and we will emerge victorious at the end of the day. I am very confident that I will be the next governor of the state in 2019,” he added.
