You are merely shadow chasing, Uche Nwosu, the man currently in the eyes of the storm in Imo State over an alleged intention of Governor Rochas Okorocha, his father-in-law, to impose him on the state as a successor, has told his critics.

The governor’s son-in-law, said that his rights to desire to contribute to the development of the state, should not be taken away from him or sacrificed on the alter of his being the husband of the daughter of the governor.

Rather, his critics should refer to his records in the position he has held and use it to ascertain his competence and willingness to deliver the best for the people, adding examples from other climes, especially in the US, had shown that it was not out of place for relations of those in power to replace them.

Hear him: “I am a son-in-law to Owelle Rochas Okorocha and I am very much proud to be his son-in-law. Today in most of the countries of the world, let me just start with President Donald Trump, his son in-law is an adviser; he is a member of his cabinet, America never went up in flames, why should Trump appoint his son-in-law as a member of the kitchen cabinet of his government?

“President Bush senior was the President and after his tenure, his son became President and America never went haywire, even at that his son was also a governor. What about the Bill Clinton family, while Clinton was President, the wife became a Senator, the wife became Secretary of State, the wife also came back to run for President, does that stop America from choosing the right person, does that bring food on the table of the poor masses?

“So being a son in-law does not stop Imo State from getting what they want to get, it does not stop the poorest of the poor in the state from having food on their tables. What you should rather ask is what do you have for the people of Imo, forget about the issue of being a son-in-law, being a son in-law to the governor is an added advantage because I have acquired knowledge, added advantage is not in the area that people say he wants to put his son-in-law; the Owelle I know cannot impose somebody on people. Naturally, the people will choose who they want to govern them.

“When you talk about Uche Nwosu, most people leave the issue of Uche Nwosu, the name they attach to it is son-in-law to the governor. Being a son-in-law to the governor, does that stop me from being who I am, Uche Nwosu; does being the son-in-law to the governor stop me from doing what I want to do as Uche Nwosu; so it has become a sin to be an in-law to the governor; these are the questions we should ask ourselves.

“People should have asked, as a son-in-law or Uche Nwosu as a Commissioner, what was I able to do in the Ministry of Lands, they should go back and check my records and legacy in that ministry. As a Deputy Chief of Staff of Operations, they should ask themselves, what has this young man done; they should also ask themselves, as a Chief of Staff what was he able to give to the society? Owelle Rochas Okorocha is not a man that will bring you to his cabinet because he wants to favour you; you must have something upstairs for you to work with Owelle Rochas Okorocha.

“I am telling you who the governor is, once Owelle Rochas Okorocha leaves the seat of power, the man I know very well will not even come close to this Government House; it is we that will be telling him please come and visit us. Rochas Okorocha has made a lot of people, senators, ministers, House members, how many times has he called to say I want to put this or that in the National Assembly or called any minister and say I want to get this from you?

“But that does not mean that whenever, as an elder statesman, just like we have Achike Udenwa, Ikedi Ohakim, we need advice, we should not go to them but the man I know very well, who I have worked with for over 20 years, is not a man who will leave a place and come back to that place and start saying this will happen.

“If God Almighty has said that it is Uche Nwosu, nobody can stop it. So, the issue of endorsement, I believe it is coming from people’s heart and what they are saying is come and be our governor and if the voice of the people is saying come and be our governor, who are you to say no?”
