The son-in-law of Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, Uche Nwosu, has maintained that he is the winner of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary in the state.
Nwosu was declared the winner of the governorship primary conducted by Ibrahim Agbabiaka’a Committee after the National Working Committee cancelled the election conducted by Ahmed Gulak.
Nwosu stated that he is the authentic governorship candidate of the party despite a court action instituted by Senator Hope Uzodinma.
He said: “There are no contentions to my victory at the Imo State governorship primary election, probably the Publicity Secretary was not well informed. What we have at the records is that the governorship candidate of the APC in Imo State is Uche Nwosu.”
“Not only that, I have a valid Court Order barring the party and the Independent National Electoral Commission from receiving any name that is not my name, there is no contention in that, the only primary that was upheld was that of Agbabiaka, which I won and everybody knew it was the authentic primary. The earlier primary that was to be conducted by Ahmed Gulak was cancelled and disbanded and a new Committee was reconstituted.
“Gulak never conducted any governorship primary. the only primary that was done in Imo State is the one conducted by Agbabiaka, I think the Publicity Secretary should go back to the records.”
