I am Not Afraid – Uche Nwosu

Governor Rochas Okorocha’s son-law, Uche Nwosu who is a leading governorship aspirant in Imo State under the All Progressives Congress (APC) has revealed that he is not afraid…

“You know that the party wants to make sure that you are qualified and credible to avoid having a governor that does not have what it takes to rule a state because a governor is not a chairman. I am happy that our National Chairman took it upon himself to actually interview and screens those who want to run for the office of the governor.”

“It is the state executive committee of the party that decides on the mode. If they decide to use indirect, so be it. If they decide on direct, so be it as well. The party has the power and the Governor is just one member of the SEC where you have up to 200 members and so, one member cannot stop the entire state executive from taking a decision.”

“The party has decided that they want to go indirect and so, we adopt that and go with that. I am fully prepared for the primaries and by the special grace of God; I will become the candidate of the party.”

“Of course, my relationship with the governor is a plus. When you have a sitting Governor in your party, you need his support to come up because he is a member of the party. Except where you have another party man as the governor of that state. But once the governor belongs to your party, you will automatically need his support.”
