‘Don’t be ashamed of what you do. Some people will say ‘I wish I was in Uche Nwosu’s shoe’ but have you asked yourself what I went through before becoming Commissioner for Land and even Chief of Staff before I ran for election as the governor of Imo State.’

‘Most of them don’t know. I tell most of them that I stayed in Aba. I once hawked oranges from Umungasi to Eziukwu, to Ariaria, to Osisioma, to Ogbor Hill, carrying my orange, shouting orange di uto, sweet orange.’
