Governor Rochas Okorocha, Imo State, has picked the governorship ticket of APC while he was still in Lagos during the National Convention that recently ended.
The Commissioner for Lands and Urban Planning, Uche Nwosu, who was secretly adopted as the APC governorship candidate by the party’s delegates, announced his withdrawal from the race. In support to this, the Chairman of the Electoral Committee, Mr. John Alamba, said that the party had the power to substitute any candidate that withdraws from the race.
Nwosu, in his brief speech said that his withdrawal from the race was based on personal and family reasons, adding that the interest of the party supersedes his personal ambition.
He enjoined the party members to give same support and solidarity to the new candidate, Governor Okorocha.
