19 Lawmakers Back Okorocha’s Son-In-Law For Governorship

The Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly, Acho Ihim, yesterday, led 19 members of the house to endorse the governorship ambition of the Chief of Staff and son-in-law to Governor Rochas Okorocha, Chief Uche Nwosu.

Ihim who read the position of the lawmakers at a press briefing in Owerri said Nwosu remained “the best and most plausible panacea to the issue of disjointed and often abandoned projects syndrome that hitherto constituted a clog in the wheel of progress in most instances.”

Ihim, who is leading the campaign team tagged “Team Nwosu”, argued that the decision of the 20 lawmakers to ensure that Nwosu took over from Okorocha was taken in the overall interest of the state.

He added that the legacies of the Okorocha-led administration “are so good and too numerous to be left in the hands of those who may not have any inkling of what they are, where they are or how to sustain them.”
