Imo Assembly Denies Endorsing Okorocha’s Son-In-Law

The Imo State House of Assembly has denied reports that it endorsed Uche Nwosu, Governor Rochas Okorocha’s son-in-law, to succeed him in 2019.

Recall that the Chairman, House Committee on Imo State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission and Niger Delta Development Commission, Henry Ezediaro, had last week announced Nwosu’s endorsement by the lawmakers.

However, the Speaker of the House, Acho Ihim, denied it.

According to Ihim, anyone is entitled to their opinion.

“No doubt, he is a member of the APC and a citizen of lmo State and these therefore give him the right to vote and be voted for,” the speaker said in a statement on Sunday.

“However, it needs be made clear that at no time did the members of the lmo State House of Assembly which comprises elected members of the APC and the PDP meet and endorse Ugwumba Uche Nwosu as our preferred governorship candidate or any person for that matter.

“The job of elected members of the House of Assembly is to make laws and make resolutions at the plenary that will impact positively on the lives of the people of lmo State. Endorsement of candidates for whatever position is not part of it.

“Each member is at liberty to have preference for any aspirant of their choice but certainly not a House matter.

“Its therefore mind-boggling that a distinguished honourable member is quoted to have granted a press interview declaring that the 27 honourable members have endorsed Ugwumba Uche Nwosu.”
