The member of the state House of Assembly representing Oguta Constituency , Mr . Henry Ezeediaro , told SUNDAY PUNCH on Saturday that the lawmakers resolved to endorse Nwosu because of their belief in his capacity to sustain the legacies of the All Progressives Congress administration in the state .
Ezediaro listed the legislators , who endorsed Nwosu , to include the Deputy Speaker of the House , Mr . Ugonna Ozuruigbo ( Nwangele constituency); a former Majority Leader of the House , Mr .

Ezediaro explained that the endorsement of Nwosu by the lawmakers was a product of wide consultations by the legislators with their constituents .
Responding to a question on the reason why seven other members of the Assembly did not support their decision, Ezediaro said , “ We cannot conclude that they are not with us; so , let them speak for themselves .”
