- Nwosu says his victory on Saturday will be overwhelming •
Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has said that the governorship candidate of Action Alliance (AA), Ugwumba Uche Nwosu is set to change the political equation in the State, describing him as “a child of destiny”.
Okorocha spoke at a mega rally organized by Vocational and Support groups for the AA governorship candidate at the Dan Anyiam Stadium on Thursday, March 7, 2019, stating too that Uche Nwosu is a story that will be told another day.
In a statement by Sam Onwuemeodo, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Okorocha said, “Today, I am over-joyed because I’ve seen and believe that you support me and mean well for the continuity and progress of Imo State. This afternoon, I want to handover some special people to you Uche Nwosu. As for your election, I know and I’m sure that it has been signed and sealed by God.
“Let no man fight him like the Bible rightly said, Touch not my anointed and do my prophets no harm. Fighting him is fighting the God who created him. Like we all know, I am APC.
“Uche also is originally APC but due to the undeserved injustice melted out to Imo political sons at the National level, he pulled off the APC garment and put on the Action Alliance, AA garment all for the good of our people.
“You all know and can tell the history of the Candidates that are contesting with him, people like Senator Hope Uzodinma, Senator Ifeanyi Araraume, Hon. Emeka Ihedioha etc.
“You must not vote Candidates with questionable characters or those who have not distinguished themselves in character to take over the running of the affairs of Imo State. Otherwise, we will be going back to Egypt and that will spell doom for Imo that has been bettered already”.
At the event, Nwosu said, “Great Imolites, I give God all the glory for a day like this. A few years ago, if anyone had told me that I will be standing amongst you to contest for the highest office in the land, the office of the Executive Governor of Imo State, I would never have believed it.
“Who is Uche Nwosu in the first place and who is little me to touch the hearts of the entire Imo people as one to merit their choosing me as the right man to serve them in this magnitude.
“The only way that I deem fit to repay you is to promise never to let you down if elected in the discharge of my official duties. I see the motorcycle people, the youths, the students, the artisans and the great women of Imo State all teaming in their numbers to support Uche Nwosu to be the next Executive Governor of our dear State.
“Again, I cannot round off this speech without giving honour to whom honour is due. Your Excellency, Owelle Anayo Rochas Okorocha (OON), my political father, my mentor, the founder of the new Imo and most especially my father-in-law, I only ask God to bless you exceedingly for allowing little me to study under your tutelage and to have come this far.
“God has shown me mercy, I must confess. Come Saturday, the 9th of March 2019, let’s all go out there to vote massively to elect our own, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu. I assure you that our victory will be overwhelming as God’s hand has signed and sealed it. I promise to consolidate on the achievements of His Excellency, Owelle Rochas Okorocha.
“I don’t want to be a sitting Governor, rather, I will be on the road working as my motto is, I have come to work. Imo youths will not suffer as Ugwumba is their mentor and I assure the women of Imo that I will never let you down. Remember that our party is AA (Action Alliance) and make sure that you guide your votes for a successful conclusion,” he said.
