A former governorship candidate of the Action Alliance (AA) in the 2019 election in Imo State, Uche Nwosu, says he has forgiven Adams Oshiomhole, the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Nwosu who has just returned to the APC after a Supreme Court judgment that declared him the authentic governorship candidate of the party (APC) for the 2019 election, said he made a choice to return to the APC after the “injustice” he suffered during the governorship primaries.
He said: “twice the APC governorship primary was conducted and I won in all, the elections were monitored by INEC and in their report I was listed as the winner but the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, denied me the candidacy of the party and submitted the name of a man that did not even contest for the primaries.
“But the recent judgment of the Supreme Court has confirmed that I was the candidate of the party but I have decided to put all that behind me and moved on.
“I have forgiven Oshiomhole of all he has done to me, it is time to focus on rebuilding the APC in Imo state and the Southeast.
“I will remain grateful to President Buhari for standing behind me through the period because he knew what happened and didn’t take sides with Oshiomhole but urged Imolites to vote according to their conscience, it is only a man that is given to fairness and justice that can do such.”
