There is a clear evidence from a reliable source that National Working Committee of All Progressives Congress ,APC has finally succeeded in persuading Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha to consider the need for Owerri Zone to produce the next governor of the state inline with state zoning arrangement and in the spirit of equity, justice and fairness.
A top APC national officer, who does not want his name mentioned, while interacting with selected journalists at the APC headquarters in Abuja, revealed that strong suggestions were made during a recent meeting to search for a neutral candidate outside the controversial choice of of Uche Nwosu and the questionable victory of Senator Uzodimma.
According to the source,the governor, Rochas Okorocha as a seating governor and with strong followership was given preferential consideration to make another choice.He is said to have muted the idea of Engr.Chuks Ololo as a man to continue with the vision.
Continuing, the source explained that the National Working committee of APC has come under pressure from Owerri Zone to produce the next Imo State governor and is presently disposed to it.
The outcome of their over stretched deliberations was to consider the need for Owerri Zone to produce the next Imo State.
Interestingly, the body language of Governor Okorocha as revealed is suggestive of the choice of Engr Ololo, an American trained and certified ICT consultant with wide network from Owerri zone.
The governor is said to have accepted the option as way out of the present situation the ruling is going when it should have been moving on with other contending issues.
Though the party national official maintained that it was not an easy suggestion for consideration but,the governor had to yield after much persuasion in a bid to move the state and party forward.
Meanwhile, a section of opinion analyst seems to have accepted Engr Ololo’s choice as a way to accommodate the governor and Owerri zone.
Available information also revealed that most of the APC National Working Committee members were impressed with the rich profile of Engineer Ololo, his experience at international level and exemplary leadership qualities as a transparent and honest person.
Moreso, some members of Engr. Ololo’s Omeneji Campaign Organization and other Imo sons and daughters passionately supporting him have scored him high as a man of strong will and character with great love for development of Owerri Zone project.
They also described him as the only true son of Owerri Zone in Imo Governorship race under APC as he stood firm on his own without joining others who suddenly supported Orlu Zone candidates in the race.
