Nwulu, who is from Ezinihitte LGA of Imo State but representing Oshodi-Isolo II Federal Constituency, Lagos State, is said to be interested in the 2019 guber race in Imo State.
Speaking at the event, the State coordinator of the Group, Comrade Kelechi Chukwu, said that the group's decision to back Nwulu stems from his sound academic background and exploits as a Legislator; with one of his bills "Not Too Young To Run" receiving a local, national and international commendation.
