Rochas Okorocha’s son-inlaw and candidate of AA Uche Nwosu has returned to the APC


Following his defeat at the recently held gubernatorial elections in Imo state, Uche Nwosu son-inlaw of  the  immediate past governor of the state Rochas Okorocha and Action Alliance (AA) candidate has returned to the All Progressives Congress (APC).


Daily Sun reports that while speaking with journalists, Nwosu,  claimed that even though the Supreme Court voided his petition for double nomination, it recognised him as a member of the APC.

“The Supreme Court has said all, it said I am the candidate of APC, what it means is that I’m the candidate of APC even though another person was foisted on APC.

“That aside, I have forgiven everybody, no matter what they have done, from the national chairman to Gulak, to those in the state; what we need is to move ahead, we are brothers and sisters, there must be peace,” Nwosu said.

Nwosu’s defection to AA became necessary for him after he lost at  the primary election of the APC in the buildup to the gubernatorial election to be held in the state.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate Emeka Ihedioha emerged winner of that election.


According to Nwosu, he has accepted the verdict of the supreme Court and recognises the Current governor Ihedioha as the governor of Imo state.

He also opined that politics should not be seen as a do-or die affair, adding that he is only interested in Imo state.

“I’ve said in my statement, whoever wins at the Supreme Court, I will give my support, be it Emeka Ihedioha, Araraume or Uzodinma I will support. But in supporting, if you do well, I will praise; if you don’t, we would criticise you,” he concluded.
