Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, has assured the electorate that his alleged anointed candidate for the forthcoming governorship poll in the state, “Ugwumba Uche Nwosu, is APC in spirit and AA in dressing.”
He disclosed this on Saturday at the South-east presidential rally for women and youths held at Dan Anyiam Stadium, Owerri.
“The leading party in this regard with strong support for Buhari is Action Alliance led by Ugwumba Uche Nwosu.
“Let me inform all of you that Ugwumba Uche Nwosu is APC in spirit and AA in dressing. He is still one of you and only using the platform to correct an injustice done to Imo people.
“APC leadership owns Imo people an apology. They treated Imo people poorly. There is no point bothering yourself; Buhari will win this election not because APC has supported us but because of our love for Buhari.
“Let me inform those from Abuja, don’t be deceived by what they tell you, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu will win the governorship election in Imo state”, Okorocha said.
In her remark at the event, the Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, urged the electorate to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election.
Mrs. Buhari, who was represented by the wife of the Vice-President, Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo, said, “APC is taking us to the next level. The government of President Buhari is working for men, women, youths and children. The government cares for all. Everybody should vote for APC. Nobody should be at home on the day of elections, but should go and vote.”
