The Chief of Staff and son-in-law to Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state, Uche Nwosu has dumped the All Progressives Congress for the Democratic Peoples’ Party, (DPP).
According to information gathered by source, Nwosu, some members of the state house of assembly, as well as some of Governor Okorocha’s aides, defected on Tuesday.
Their defection is reportedly linked to the fall out of the APC governorship primaries in the state in which Nwosu failed to emerge as the party’s gubernatorial candidate.
As reported, Okorocha only recently, declared his support for Buhari and the APC in the 2019 general elections, stating that he remains a member of the party.
The governor was however quick to mention that he would work for the victory of Nwosu as the next governor of the state in 2019 even as he pursues his own dream of becoming a senator representing Orlu Senatorial District on the platform of the APC.
