Uche Nwosu, son-in-law and Chief of Staff to the Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has said that the Governor will not dictate for him if he eventually succeeds him.
Nwosu, who opened up on his governorship aspiration in an interview with Punch, said his father- in-law would not dictate his actions if he becomes governor.
Okorocha’s endorsement of Nwosu had sparked a row in the state.
He said, “This is another tool of blackmail employed by mischievous politicians who have been dislodged in the state. Some people are saying they do not want me to be governor because I am Okorocha’s son-in-law.
“They claimed that if I become governor, Governor Okorocha would manipulate me and tell me what to do . If tomorrow they say Uche Nwosu is the governor, Okorocha will not say , ‘let me give him a list ’ like other people do.”
He said instead of criticising his ambition, other governorship aspirants in the state should discuss their plans and programmes for the people of the state.
He added, “Yes, I am a son-in-law to Rochas Okorocha and I am very much proud to be his son-in-law.
“In most of the countries of the world, let me just start with (United States ) President Donald Trump; his son – in-law is an adviser and America never went up in flame.
“George Bush was the President of the United States and after his tenure, his son became President and America never went haywire.
“Governor Okorocha will not impose somebody on the people.
“Naturally, the time will come when the people will choose who they want to govern them.”
