…vows to retrieve guber ticket in court
The All Progressives Congress(APC) governorship aspirant in Imo and son- in- law to governor, Rochas Okorocha, Mr. Uche Nwosu, has condemned the action of the National Party Chairman saying that he( Adams Oshiomole) cannot stop his 2019 governorship candidature for APC, in the state.
The immediate past Chief of Staff spoke to newsmen in Owerri, following report that Senator Hope Uzodimma’s name has been submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, as authentic candidate for Imo APC guber.
Nwosu,who said he was shocked that Oshiomole, had disregarded court orders stopping APC and INEC, from accepting or submitting any other name other him( Nwosu) adding that at last he would defeat Oshiomole, lawfully.
Nwosu said:“My mandate is still intact, I still remain the candidate of the APC, I am very much shocked with the National Chairman who is speaking from the both sides of his mouth as a man of that age I thought he would have been upright.
“I am shocked that a man who has attained that age and who we should look up to as our role model has become somebody who many of us can no longer see as a role model again. “I am shocked at the attitude of the National Chairman which does not give hope to young people that mostly look up to him for years.
“I will not leave APC, I still remain the authentic candidate of that party, I still have a valid Court Oder restraining the party from submitting any other name and also restraining INEC from accepting any other name other than my name and the matter is in Court.
“So if they go anywhere and got another Court Order without knowing that there is a subsisting Court Order that must have been done that in error.
“So the fact remains that I am the candidate of APC, it is just for a while and I will take up my mandate, I don’t have in mind to leave the mandate I already have for another party.”
“My candidacy is secured and cannot be truncated by the National Chairman or any other person,
“I will never abandon the mandate given to him by the party members to be their governorship candidate for the 2019 election.
“We are disappointed over Oshiomole’s action, his statements and antics did not give hope to young people who hitherto had always looked up to him.”
