The All Progressive Congress APC Spokesperson of Imo State has affirmed that governorship elections is a local business and that all governorship candidates in Imo State should learn from the for ever supported present Imo State governor special candidate Uche Nwosu.

Onwuasoanya FCC Jones in his words writes....

Governorship election is a local business. You cannot negotiate the governorship of a State outside the State. You must come back home, engage the people and make them understand why it has to be you. You must not be deceived into thinking that you can win the governorship solely by deals reached in Abuja or any other place outside the State. It should be considered insulting to the generality of Imo people that majority of aspirants in the State are hinging their hopes on outsiders rather than coming home to campaign and secure the support of the people.

The only governorship hopeful who has shown so much respect to the people of Imo State is Ugwumba Uche Nwosu, who regularly falls back to consult with the people and seek their blessings for his governorship ambition, his massive contacts in Abuja and across the world notwithstanding. In return, the people of Imo State, especially, the youths, who incidentally constitute more than 60% of active voters, have continued to reciprocate this respect by massive show of support to the Eziama-Obaire born real estate mogul turned politician. To say that should the general elections hold today, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu will win with a landslide will be stating the obvious. 

Presently, it is looking like there is no contest over the governorship of the State as Ugwumba Uche Nwosu's popularity has overwhelmed that of every other person. As a political activist rather than as a political Party official, I wish to urge other governorship aspirants both in the APC and across other political Parties to learn from Uche Nwosu how political mobilization should look like and make some credible attempts at challenging him for the support of the people.
