Chief of staff to the Governor of Imo State and All Progressives Congress governorship aspirant, Uche Nwosu, says that he will forfeit his security vote to sustain the free education programme of the state government if elected governor in 2019.

Nwosu said that the incumbent governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, forfeited his security vote amounting to N6 billion to fund free education in the state.

According to him, it took one with humane disposition like the governor to make such “huge sacrifice” for the development of the state.

Nwosu, who is also a son-in-law to the state governor, spoke at a meeting with APC leaders from Ideato North Local Government Area of the state in Owerri, the state capital.

Explaining how he would continue with free education in the state, Nwosu maintained that the educational sector would be his priority if he was voted in as the next governor of the state.

The chief of staff said that the impact of the free education programme would transcend to generations unborn, even as he disclosed that human capital development would form the bedrock of his government if elected.

“Governor Rochas Okorocha forfeited N6 billion security vote for free education and I will do the same to ensure continuity of the policy if elected governor.

“Other aspirants may make such promise, but will not keep them because of greed and selfishness. It is better to lead and still maintain your reputation than to lose it when you are out of office.

“Victory comes from God and not the amount of army, police or money at one’s disposal,” the governorship aspirant added.
