During the heat of the National Convention of the All Progressive Congress, APC held at the weekend, media reports surfaced that Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha had compromised the governorship ambition of his son in law and Chief of Staff, Uche Nwosu.
Reports said Nwosu was traded off by the Governor as a bargaining power to regain the soul of Imo APC and in the South East geo political zone.
The news has been trending on the social media since the weekend. But Nwosu has reacted.
He was quoted in a statement shortly after the emergence of Barr. Emma Ibediro as National Organizing Secretary of the All Progressive Congress, APC.
He denied claims in the media that Okorocha traded off his governorship ambition saying his ambition is divine.
“My ambition is divine and no man can alter it. Owelle Rochas Okorocha is only committed to producing a successor who will continue the good work from where he will stop.
“What is paramount in our mind now is to galvanize our party and reconcile those that are nursing various grouses and position for victory in 2019 and not wasting energy on baseless issues.
“Those peddling the rumour that the Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha has exchanged my ambition for the party structure are only jittery” he said.
