‘Why I Want My Son-In-Law To Succeed Me As Governor In 2019’ – Okorocha
The governor, at a meeting with members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from Owerri Municipal Council Area on Monday, said his decision to support Nwosu is derived from the fact that Nwosu has “the qualities of an ideal leader”.
The governor stated that although the Chief of Staff had not told him that he had his eyes on the governorship seat, he was ready to back for the job should he indicate interest as he remains his anointed for the job.
“Uche Nwosu is hardworking and never gets tired. He is a very humble young man; not proud; not arrogant. So, Power won’t enter his head. Despite the position he occupies, you can’t see him quarrelling or maltreating anybody. He does not segregate against anybody. I have checked him in and out and I have not found him wanting.”
The governor called on the people not to repeat the mistake of 2015, stressing that the Igbo must vote for APC and President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 because according to him, “the Igbo need the North for political survival”.
