Despite not receiving the backing of his boss and State Governor, Rochas Okorocha for the 2019 governorship election, Imo State Deputy Governor, Prince Eze Madumere appears not deterred as he fires on his governorship bid on all cylinders.
Madumere has said he is unshaken and unstoppable in his resolve to work towards becoming the next governor of the State in 2019
According to a press release by his Chief Press Secretary, Uche Onwuchekwa, the Deputy Governor reassured that he will pursue his ambition to a logical conclusion, averring that he is in the governorship race to serve the people of the State and posses the requisite qualities. He spoke when a socio political group under the aegis “Dozie Imo Group” visited him.
He explained he is a seasoned administrator with many years of experience in the private and public sector, describing Imo people as highly enlightened who must be carried along in policy formulation and implementation. He said no man can stop his ambition and likened his betrayal to that of Jesus Christ who was also betrayed by those he loved and called his friends.
He however vowed that no man born of a woman can stop his ambition, saying that God remains the ultimate decider of anyone’s future. “I rely not in any man no matter how highly placed. I have taken my destiny in my hands. I have God and the people of Imo State”
He recalled that despite all his losses in the course of building what is today known as Rescue mission, he expressed happiness that God has always granted him the grace to carry on. He said he has no regret because it has made him even stronger in his bid to make the difference in changing the tide for the people, saying that any development that does not trickle down to the masses is a misplaced priority.
Earlier, the group under the aegis ‘Dozie Imo Group’ led by Chief Mathew Oduh said they had come on a solidarity visit to the Deputy Governor, to encourage him to keep hope alive.
He said their support is not unconnected with his antecedent of success and meritorious service to the people. He described the number two citizen of the State as a seasoned administrator with a track record of scientific approach to finding solutions to puzzling challenges, which he demonstrated over time even as the Deputy Governor of Imo State.
