Governor Rochas Okorocha’s son-in-law Uche Nwosu has vowed to continue the push to reclaim his stolen mandate from the court.
The Imo state government Chief of Staff was reacting to a threat by the National Working Committee (NWC) to aggrieved members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to withdraw their suits or face sanctions.
Reacting in a post on Tuesday, Nwosu insisted that the threat of sanction would not stop him from pursuing the matter to a logical conclusion and reclaim his mandate.
He said: “It is unfortunate that the National Chairman of our party is just waking up now after causing the trouble. He had all the time to resolve the issue before now but refused to do so. In line with the constitution of the party, I exhausted all avenues to have my matter resolved, using the internal mechanism, but nobody came to my aid.
“I personally wrote three letters to the National Chairman and I have the acknowledgment, but he never responded to any of the letters.
“My first letter was to inform that Ahmed Gulak was not coming to conduct a primary in Imo State, that he was coming to impose a certain aspirant. But he snubbed me. The second was to complain about how Gulak absconded to Abuja to announce a fake result; still, he didn’t respond. The last one was to tell him not to substitute my name as the winner of the governorship primary.
“All the letters were never considered by the National Chairman, who substituted my name. He had a lot of time to resolve the issue, but he did nothing. Now that I am in court, I will pursue my matter to a logical conclusion and reclaim my stolen mandate. No amount of threat will make me abandon my mandate.”
