A former candidate in the 2019 Imo State governorship election, Uche Nwosu and other members of the Imo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress loyal to ex-governor Rochas Okorocha, have been appointed into the party’s national convention sub-committees.
In the list obtained by Journalists in Abuja on Saturday and signed by James Akpanudoedehe,
Secretary Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Nwosu, made the list as a member of the screening committee.
Okorocha’s other loyalists appointed into the committee were Sunny Chiadi, Ijeoma Igboamusi, Okey Anyikwa, Nnanna Okoro, Faisal Lawal, Steve Asimobi, among others.
