Uche Nwosu, a former Chief of Staff and son-in-law to the Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, yesterday, dumped The All Progressives Congress (APC).
Nwosu defected to the Action Alliance (AA), which was registered by governor Rochas Okorocha, to pursue his gubernatorial ambition.
Speaking with newsmen at the Sam Mbakwe International Airport shortly on arrival from Abuja, he said he was forced out of APC because of injustice, impunity and lack of respect for the party’s constitution.
He, however, said that despite what the APC and its leadership led by Adams Oshiomhole, did, he was confident of winning the Imo governorship contest in 2019.
Nwosu pointed out that the entire APC structure, except those supporting the senatorial ambition of Okorocha, had dissolved into AA.
He described AA as a party with the ideal democratic manifesto, stressing that his ambition to succeed Okorocha was driven by the massive support he enjoyed from the over 70 per cent of the electorate in Imo State.
He said AA will work hand in hand with APC to deliver President Muhammadu Buhari and Gov. Okorocha as president and senator respectively.
