Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has urged President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC)
headed by Comrade Adams Oshiomhole not to give Senator Hope Uzodinma the party governorship ticket for the state, saying that the senator would leave the party in 2019 if the president loses the general election.
Instead, the governor wants the NWC to submit the name of his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, as the Imo APC Guber candidate for the state.
Okorocha told journalists in Owerri on the weekend that almost every politician who joined the APC in the last two months would leave the party the next day if Buhari loses the 2019 election, describing them as political opportunists.
He said, “90 percent of those who have joined APC in the last two months are doing so not because they love APC, they can never go to an election without federal might and per adventure President Buhari loses this election, the next day they will leave the party.
