As build up to the 2019 gubernatorial election continues to gain weight in the country, political observers are daily building up analyses on the state of things, especially in Imo state where a facebook user, DESMOND UGWUMBA captures this analyses…
Hon Uche Nwosu
He was a personal assistant to the Ogboko born flamboyant politician before he was appointed commissioner of Lands and later Chief of staff to Rochas Okorocha. He became the most influential person in the administration when he got married to Uloma nee Okorocha who is the first daughter to the land speculator. Uche Nwosu who sat for 10,000 job exam and failed during Dr. Ikedi Ohakim’s administration contested and won gubernatorial primary election in 2015 but handed over the ticket to Okorocha over family issues.
He is currently the Chief of staff to his father In law and he is also a practicing land speculator. In 2015, he supervised the beating of an Imo born journalist with his boys at Rochas foundation along Okigwe. He was recently accused of stealing the missing bailout fund in Imo which the matter is still in court. As a wealthy philanthropist who accumulated stupendous wealth in the last 7 years of Governor Rochas Okorocha’s government, he is being touted to contest 2019 governorship election on the platform of APC. He is a frontliner of Okorocha’s political squad.
Hon Kingsley Uju
He is a vibrant deputy Chief of staff (Operations) to Governor Rochas Okorocha. A man of different good characters. The Ohaji Egbema born politician has been involved in controversies which includes, alleged use of thugs to intimidate shop owners during the infamous Eke Ukwu demolition at Douglas road in Owerri.
He was once alleged of manhandling a Vanguard newspaper correspondent. In the recent time, he was also alleged to have beaten a leader of Okorocha’s social media group in his house. He has become too rich in the few years he put in the government and now a flamboyant philanthropist like his master, Rochas Okorocha, especially to his section of Ohaji Egbema youths.
He is said to be in control of some groups of Ohaji Egbema youths who are hungry for food and thirst for drinks as a benevolent leader. He is in the political squad of Governor Rochas Okorocha.
Deacon Chike Okafor.
He was Zenith bank branch manager before he joined politics as a commissioner of Finance during Governor Rochas Okorocha’s first tenure. The man who has penchant for exotic cars is alleged to be the main instrument the governor used and ran Imo down financially in his first tenure.
According to the former adviser to Rochas Okorocha on Youth matters, Hon Henry Nwabueze, Chike Okafor got loan on certain percentage which he used to settle Governor Rochas Okorocha and Uche Nwosu. He is now too rich and has become a flamboyant philanthropist in the last 7 years he served as a commissioner and currently a House of Representatives member.
He is a member of Rochas’ political squad.
Prince Henry Okafor
The great herberlist from Ose Moto in Oguta L G A is trying to reconnect himself fully with power that be in this second tenure of Rochas. He was appointed MD of ISOPADEC but was later dropped as his erratic master always do not follow due process.
He shouldn’t have been in this discourse but his recent come-back campaign tagged “Okorocha show us the man and go to sleep” really showed how lazy Imo political class have become. He became an instant messenger in the inner circle of Okorocha kitchen cabinet with the much publicized primary campaign.
He is now battling with Hon Kingsley Uju in the control of hungry boys of the Rescue government. He is a member of Okorocha’s political squad.
