The Chairman of the All progressives Congress in Imo State, Daniel Nwafor, has declared that Governor Rochas Okorocha cannot determine the governorship candidate of the party for the 2019 general elections.
The chairman made this known after presenting the keys to the 27 Sienna vehicles bought for the chairmen of the party in all the local government areas of the state as he insisted that members of the party would determine the party’s candidate for the governorship election next year.
“It is normal, personal and democratic for the governor to prefer a particular aspirant as his successor but it will not affect our primary election.
“The governor has only one vote. The party will determine who will be our governorship candidate and the Imo people will determine who will be the next governor of the state.”
He however added that the party recognised the governor as the leader of the party in the state, but that his choice of his Chief of Staff, Uche Nwosu, as his preferred successor would not affect the credibility of the party’s primary.
