The Chief of Staff to the Imo State Governor, Mr. Uche Nwosu, has  said  he will succeed his father-in-law, Rochas Okorocha,  as governor in  2019.

Nwosu, who spoke at a press conference in Abuja on Sunday,  described as “unfortunate” comments attributed to the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, suggesting that he (Oshiomhole) would not serve as an enabler for Okorocha to establish a family political dynasty.

Nwosu said there was no part of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) making  it an offence for someone to seek an election to office on account of him/her being married to the offspring of an occupant of such an office.

He said, “I won that (primary) election. I remain the candidate of the  APC and nobody can take it away from me. It might take a while but let me state it and state it clearly, I am the candidate of  the APC and by the special grace of God, come 2019   I have no doubt that I will be the governor of Imo State.”

He explained that the claim by Oshiomhole that the APC National Working Committee under his leadership upheld the result of the primary submitted  by  the he Chairman of the Imo State governorship primaries, Ahmed Gulak,  was “fraudulent”.

He stated that he won the one earlier conducted by a majority of  the members of the Ahmed Gulak panel after  the former Political Adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan allegedly  sneaked out of Owerri to Abuja to announce a  result which the party’s headquarters cancelled.

He  insisted that  he also won the second one conducted by the Ibrahim Agbabiaka  committee.

Nwosu  said “The APC NWC set up the committee led by General Agbabiaka and they   came to Owerri  to conduct another primary, which  I won.

“The committee sent their report to the NWC, and the national  committee approved the result.”
