The Peoples Democratic Party has stated its opposition to the governorship bid of one Uche Nwosu, the son-in-law to Imo Governor Rochas Okorocha.
Chares Ezekwem, the party’s chairman, said this on Wednesday.
“This family business will not work; the idea of Okorocha handing over power to his son-in-law after eight years will not work. This ‘familiocracy’ will be rejected because Imo people are highly educated and civilised”, he said.
Okorocha, had told the state executives of the All Progressive Congress and traditional rulers, who paid him a visit at the Government House, that Nwosu possesses all it takes to succeed him.
“Uche Nwosu possesses all the qualities to be a good governor. He can exercise regard for the poor. He can make sacrifice. My happiness at the end of this administration is to see a worthy successor; successor who will not destroy free education and work for the state as if his life depends on that. I won’t impose anybody, but I am entitled to support anybody that I see can do the job,” he stated.
