Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State is at it again.

The governor has once again made the headlines, as usual controversially.

He said on Monday said despite perceived opposition across the state, he would support his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, to be governor in 2019 if he decides to contest.

Nwosu, who is currently the governor’s Chief of Staff, is married to Okorocha’s first daughter, Ulomma.

A press statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Sam Onwuemeodo, quoted Okorocha to have spoken when leaders of the All Progressives Congress from Owerri Municipal Council visited him on Monday.

The APC leaders’ visit, Onwuemeodo said, was to urge Okorocha to encourage Nwosu to be the next governor.

The statement quoted Okorocha as testifying, “Uche Nwosu is hardworking, and never gets tired.

“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 quarreling with anybody or maltreating anybody.

“He does not segregate anybody, whether from Orlu or Owerri or Okigwe zone. He relates with people enviously.”

“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,” Okorocha reportedly said.
