Senator Okorocha’s endorsement came after a meeting with Vice President Kashim Shettima and the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr Abdullahi Ganduje.

The meeting is on the heels of the heated feud between Uzodinma and Rochas, which the Vice President and the national chairman of the APC have squashed.

Meanwhile, Senator Okorocha described Uzodinma as a worthy party man who has promoted the party’s progressive ideals in his administration of Imo State affairs and other national assignments.
