- The governorship candidate of the Action Alliance, Uche Nwosu, says he is ready to reconcile with the APC
- Nwosu discloses that he has put aside the the alleged injustice he received from the APC
- The governorship candidate says he has gone to the election petition tribunal against the PDP
Weeks after he lost his governorship ambition in Imo state, the candidate of the Action Alliance, Uche Nwosu, on Tuesday, April 2, said he was ready to reconcile with the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Nwosu had left the APC to the AA to actualise his ambition. He, however, lost the election to the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Emeka Ihedioha.
The Nation reports that Nwosu said he had put aside what he described as the injustice visited against him by the leadership of the APC.
He said he is currently willing to form a coalition with the party to reclaim his mandate.
“The national leadership of the APC made a mistake by not giving the party’s ticket to me, we warned them against giving the ticket to Hope Uzodinma but the leadership of the party ignored our warnings, but the outcome of the elections has justified us.
“We joined the AA two months to the election and I won the governorship election if not for the manipulations, we also got two House Representatives seats and eight seats in the state Assembly but now that they have realized their mistakes we are ready to form alliance with APC to reclaim our mandate,” he said.
Nwosu reportedly said he had petitioned the election petition tribunal against the declaration of Ihedioha as governor-elect.
He expressed belief that the election will be upturned.
“I have petitioned the tribunal and I am sure that the issues raised which bothers on constitution cannot be swept away, I am certain that I will reclaim my mandate in no distant time,” he said.
He urged the youth in the state to remain calm and law abiding
Nwosu, who attributed his success in the election to Imo youths, stated that power has temporarily left the masses.

“What is happening is an interim setback, it will soon be over and power will once more return to the people,” he said.
