A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Mr Uche Nwosu has thrown his weight behind the second term aspiration of Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo state.
Nwosu made his position known while speaking with newsmen in Abuja during a visit to the new national chairman of the APC.
He maintained that his support for Uzodinma was in tandem with the dictates of the party.
During the visit Nwosu urged him to carry members of the party along in his daily activities and pledged readiness to work for the good of the party.
“I am a committed member of the party in Imo state and would always work for the progress of the party,” he said.
He also ruled out the possibility of him aspiring for the governorship of Imo state for now and expressed optimism that Ganduje would reposition the party.
“I am not running for the seat for now. Hope Uzodinma is the candidate of the party. We can’t have two candidates of APC in Imo state.”
On the Coup in neighbouring Niger republic, he said the act is not only condemnable but unacceptable as it would negatively affect the socioeconomic development of the country.
“Nevertheless, he said the coup in Niger serves as a wake up call on those entrusted with the leadership of countries in Africa to ensure good governance.
Nwosu called on Nigerians facing hardship due to the removal of fuel subsidy to be patient with the present administration for at least a year before assessing his performance.
On the international Youth day celebration, Nwosu assured Nigerian youths that the entire nation is standing behind them as they pursue their dreams.
He urged youths to embrace the numerous challenges they encounter while chasing their dreams, stressing that they possess the capacity to light up Nigeria.
“As you celebrate this International Youth Day, know that you are not alone, the entire nation stands behind you, ready to champion your aspirations, embrace the challenges, chase your dreams, be involved, and continue to be the beacon of hope that lights up our nation,” Nwosu stressed.
He commended Nigerian youths for their steadfastness and resilience despite the challenges in the country.
He also encouraged youths to remain resolute and cultivate virtues that would make them become good citizens and excellent leaders.
