Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, says nothing will stop his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, from succeeding him as he has already been “ordained by God” and supported by 24 out of the 27 local government areas in the state.

Governor Okorocha said this in a statement released by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo. Okorocha was reacting to claims that his son-in-law, who is his chief of staff, supervised the assault on the Catholic Archbishop of Owerri, Most Rev. Anthony Obinna, at a funeral in the state over the weekend. There were reports online that Nwosu had led other APC members to the funeral where they attacked the clergyman who spoke against his political ambition.

Okorocha in his statement, said Nothing will stop his son in-law from taking over from him as it has been ordained by God and supported by 24 out of the 27 local governments in the state.

This time, it is Uche Nwosu because they have seen that he is the man for 2019 with God on our side. And no amount of blackmail or tricks would change the plan of God on the young man to govern the state. It takes someone alive in the things of the spirit to know that Uche Nwosu is a ‘child of destiny. He has the divine mark; and anyone fighting him is fighting his God. And no one can battle with God. We do not intend to bore our audience with a lengthy story to show the reason behind this latest blackmail or onslaught until Archbishop Obinna himself talks on the claim. However, we say this for posterity. Imo people, including youths, students, men and women have thrown their unalloyed support behind the youthful Chief of Staff, Uche Nwosu, for the 2019 governorship in the state. He has become the subject-matter as long as that issue is concerned, with APC officials and leaders from 24 out of the 27 local governments in the state having already endorsed him for 2019.”he said

Nwosu is married to Governor Okorocha's daughter, Uloma.

When will POLITICS and LEADERSHIP stop being a DO or DIE activity in Nigeria?

IMO State IS in a need of a makeover. The state IS in a MESS. No roads ETC.

The Bishop was stating what other Imolites can only think in their minds and are too afraid to say.
