You were never an Imo governorship candidate – Supreme Court to Okorocha’s son-in-law, Uche Nwosu

The candidacy of Uche Nwosu, the son-in-law of former Governor of Imo State Rochas Okorocha has been voided by the Supreme Court.

 

Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, the National Chairman of the Action Peoples Party (APP) and spokesman of the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) who addressed newsmen after the Supreme Court Judgement said the apex court upheld APP’s argument that Uche Nwosu was never a candidate for the Imo governorship election in 2019.

 

Reading the unanimous judgment, Justice Amina Augie stated that Uche Nwosu’s double candidature placed him at a spot for disqualification in line with the clear provisions of the Electoral Act. The judgments of the High Court and the Court of Appeal was upheld by the Supreme Court.

 

Ikenga said;

 

 “Just a few minutes ago, the apex court finally quashed the over bloated governorship ambition of Uche Nwosu, the son-in-law of former Governor Rochas Okorocha and his stooge through which Okorocha would have continued his stranglehold on the resources of Imo State and technically be holding office for a third term.”

 

The APP Chairman affirmed that Imo State has been liberated from Okorocha’s dynasty and also called on the EFCC and the ICPC to investigate the former Imo State Governor and his son-in-law with an aim of recovering all that was allegedly stolen from the state.
