Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, stated that his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu has what it takes to be the next governor of the state after him.
Governor Okorocha made this known while receiving leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from Owerri municipal council yesterday February 12th.
According to him,
“Uche Nwosu is hardworking, and never gets tired. I have checked him in and out, I have not found him wanting. He is a very humble young man. Not proud. Not arrogant. So, power won’t enter his head. In spite of the position he occupies, you can’t see him quarrelling with anybody or maltreating anybody. He does not segregate anybody, whether from Orlu or Owerri or Okigwe zone. He relates with people enviously'' Sam Onwuemeodo, who is governor Okorocha's chief press secretary, quoted him as saying.
On whether Nwosu who is currently his chief of staff is from the zone that ought to produce the next governor, Governor Okorocha said “Zoning does not put food on the table of anybody. What the state wants is Imo governor and not Owerri zone or Orlu zone or Okigwe zone governor. The young man is a team player who does not use his office to molest anybody. He has the qualities of a good leader. If he says he will run for governor, I will support him.”
Nwosu is yet to declare his intention to run for the office of the governor.
