Imo State decampees from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the hope of getting juicy federal appointments may soon be disappointed, the Daily Times has learnt.
It was learnt that the deal which got many of of the decampees to move into the APC was the pledge by the Governor, Rochas Okorocha, to cede some political appointments to them.
The Daily Times learnt that the Governor has ceded four slots to his inlaws and family members.
According to sources, the Governor has nominated his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, for ministerial appointment. He has also nominated his brother-in-law, Chuks Ololo, the son of the current Secretary to the State Governor Professor Anthony Anwuka and his younger brother Jude Okorocha for choice federal boards and Director General of agencies.
Nwosu is currently the state Commissioner for Lands and Urban Planning, while Ololo contested the House of Representatives, Owerri Federal Constituency under the APC.
Okorocha has been widely criticised for allegedly turning his state into a family party.
