The former Chief of Staff to Imo State Government and Son-in-law to Governor Rochas Okorocha, Mr Uche Nwosu has successfully secured the nod of the Action Alliance (AA) to fly her party flag in the 2019 Imo governorship election.
The negotiation with Action Alliance which started Wednesday November 28th was concluded on Thursday November 29th after the Democratic Peoples Party (DPP) rejected offers made by the Okorocha’s Son-in-law to fly their party’s flag.
It was gathered that the duscussion with DPP broke down following the insistence by the Uche Nwosu’s technical team led by Hon (Bar) Ikenna Emeh for the Ugwumba Uche Nwosu Campaign Organization to take over the leadership structure of the Democratic Peoples Party from the ward, down 27 LGAs and State Excos and substitute names of Imo State House of Assembly candidates already in the party with members of the Imo State House of Assembly denied tickets in the All Progressive Congress (APC) aa it was vehemently rejected and it forced the Rescue Mission family to quickly make a U-turn and embrace Action Alliance.
With this new development, members of the rescue mission government who weren’t successful at securing the APC ticket will now fly the Action Alliance ticket.
The inability of Hon Chike Okafor who won the All Progressive Congress ticket for Okigwe South Federal constituency to join Okorocha’s Son-in-law to Action Alliance has forced Prof Nnamdi Obiaraeri to withdraw from contesting for Okigwe senate seat under Action Alliance, rather prefers to pursue his legal action against the All Progressive Congress for disqualifying him in the guess of granting automatic ticket to Senator Benjamin Uwajumogu.
Due to the fact that he can’t continue with his Senatorial race for Okigwe Zone, Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Acho Ihim from Okigwe LGA was nominated as Deputy Governorship running mate to Ugwumba Uche Nwosu.
