Ekechi described Okorocha’s move as “anachronistic, unhealthy, unacceptable and a serious threat to the development and growth of All Progressives Congress, APC, in Imo State.”

He spoke yesterday in a chat with newsmen in Owerri.

Ekechi noted that “the endorsement of his son- in-law will definitely reduce the chance of the APC in the forthcoming general elections.

“There are more intellectually endowed and vibrant personalities in the state, who are more qualified to be endorsed than his son in-law,” he said.

Ekechi further called for the restoration of the zoning formula in the state for equity, justice, fair play and development, lamenting that Orlu Zone had ruled the state for 16 years.



  1. But he has the constitutional right as a citizen of Imo State to endorse anybody he so desires just like every other Imo State citizen,it is however left for the Imo State APC to nominate him. These people should therefore redirect their energy towards making it impossible for the young man,Uche Nwosu, to emerge as the nominated candidate of APC and not to disturb our ear drums with their clearly unnecessary noise, if they really have what it takes to stop the young man.
