Okorocha turning Imo governance to family business; it won’t work says PDP


The opposition People’s Democratic Party PDP has berated Imo state governor Rochas Okorocha for planning to ‘install’ his son-in-law as the next governor of the state.


Uche Nwosu is the governor’s son-in-law, who is currently married to Uloma, the governor’s daughter and chief of staff to her father.


Imo state PDP chairman Charles Ezekwem in his reaction yesterday said the party will reject any moves by Okorocha to hand over power to his in-law.


According to Ezekwem; “This family business will not work; the idea of Okorocha handing over power to his son-in-law after eight years will not work.


“This ‘familiocracy’ will be rejected because Imo people are highly educated and civilized,” he said.


Okorocha on Monday had declared that if his son-in-law expresses his willingness to run for governor, he would have no choice but to support him.


“Uche Nwosu possesses all the qualities to be a good governor. He can exercise regard for the poor. He can make sacrifices,’ Okorocha had said earlier in the week.
