Abuja – The former Governor of Imo State, Senator Rochas Okorocha has endorsed the second tenure bid of His Excellency Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma as the Executive Governor of Imo State in the November 11th Governorship election in Imo State.
This was the outcome of the meeting between the Vice President, H.E. Senator Kashim Shettima, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), H.E. Alhaji Umar Ganduje, the Governor of Imo State cum Chairman of the Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF), H.E. Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma and H.E. Senator Rochas Okorocha.
The former Senator representing Imo West in the 9th Assembly, described Uzodimma as a worthy party man who has promoted the progressive ideals of the party in his administration of Imo State affairs and other national assignments. As such, Governor Uzodimma deserves all the support he needs and I will work for his victory, Okorocha added.
This endorsement is coming barely hours after Okorocha’s son in-law and Governorship candidate of the Action Alliance (AA) in the 2019 Imo State Governorship election, Uche Nwosu, had endorsed Governor Hope Uzodimma for re-election.
Recall that in the early days of Governor Uzodimma’s current tenure, the media space had been awash with stories of quarrel amongst the two leaders of Imo State. However, with this recent endorsement by Senator Rochas Okorocha, it sends a signal of unity in the All Progressives Congress (APC) camp in Imo State.
