I have not giving up on the governorship race – Ugwumba Uche Nwosu

The Chief of Staff to the Imo State Governor, Ugwumba Uche
Nwosu, has described as unfounded and baseless, reports that he
has suspended his governorship ambition over the opposition
mounted by the ‘Coalition Group’.
Nwosu stated that rather, his ambition has been strengthened by
the activities of the opposition, which he affirmed has prepared him
for the task ahead, stressing that cheap blackmail and propaganda
can’t stop his ambition.
The Chief of Staff and former Commissioner for Lands, who was
reacting to a publication in one of the national newspapers that he
may have jettisoned his push for the Imo State governorship,
following the outcome of the party’s congresses, confirmed that
his support base across the state has continued to swell by the
day, which he said is rattling his opponents.
He maintained that he is not disturbed by the political intrigues and
controversies that arose during the course of the contentious APC
Congresses in the state, noting that his ambition is “divine and
cannot be truncated by any man”.

According to him, those behind the report of his purported
withdrawal from the race are those who are already losing sleep
over his growing acceptance among the Imo electorate, adding
that, “no amount of cheap blackmail or sponsored falsehood in the
media can distract him or derail God’s plan for Imolites through his
He said, “there is nothing that can be farther from the truth than
such report that I have suspended my ambition. It is those in the
opposition that have suspended their governorship aspirations
because of the fear of Ugwumba Uche Nwosu. They are afraid
because they know that they don’t stand a chance against the will
of God and the people.
“We are very focused on the goal and we cannot be distracted. If
you observe correctly, you will discover that we are not resting on
our oars, we are moving and taking our message to the nooks and
crannies of the state, while the so called Coalition Group are
running around in hotels in Abuja looking for ways to subvert the
will of the people, they are not on ground and none of them can
win any election in Imo”.
Nwosu who urged his supporters and the APC to disregard the
malicious rumour, stated that what transpired during the botched
APC Congresses in the state has revealed the plans of the
opposition parties to infiltrate the APC with the intention of
introducing crisis that will mar the chances of the party during the
2019 election.
He said, “those same people who fought Governor Rochas
Okorocha and even called him all sort of uncomplimentary names,
some even went as far as selling the falsehood that he was
working with President Muhammadu Buhari to Islamize the
Southeast when he was building the APC, are the same people who
are pretending to love the party. We know their plans and their
sponsors but just like we defeated them in 2011 and 2015, we will
also defeat them in 2019 and President Muhammadu Buhari will
have landslide victory in Imo and other Southeast states
