The Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere has frowned at the negative connotations associated with politicians, thereby bringing condemnation to those who are involved in partisan politics.
The Deputy Governor of Imo State made the observation while playing host to the Executive members of Madumere Fans Club at his country home in Achi-Mbieri Mbaitoli local government area of Imo State.
Prince Madumere would rather prefer to be identified as an administrator, which is his core area of strength since the word politician has been bastardised. He however regretted the activities of some inconsistent elements, which has negatively robbed off on good nature leaders who find themselves in partisan politics, putting everyone on the same scale of negativity.
He therefore called on the people to see him as an administrator, adding that whatever he says, he does. “Please I would want to be identified as an Administrator or a Management expert because it is not only my background academically but it is what I love doing. For those of you who know my antecedent, I put things together. I plan myself and do not promise what I cannot do instead I will humbly say no to you and keep my integrity”; he enthused.
Acknowledging the group under the aegis of ‘Madumere Fans Club’, he said he first saw their activities on the social media but was stunned by their aggressive pursuit of those values that are in consonance with his beliefs. His words: “I first saw the activities of Madumere Fans Club on social media. I was wondering, which Madumere did these mean? As time went on, I began to see my photos and stories, it was then I realised these guys meant business. Today, we are meeting for the first time despite the fact that I have always answered your calls in your programmes especially in your long vacation free lessons and Skill acquisition programmes”; he submitted.
He admonished them to continue in the ardent support for rescue mission government led by Owelle Rochas Okorocha, assuring them of legacies they can be proud of.
Earlier, the National Coordinator of Madumere Fans Club, Comrade Udochukwu Dickson thanked the Deputy Governor for granting the group even on short notice. He showered encomium on the Deputy Governor for proudly conducting himself in such a manner that all have come to appreciate his leadership qualities, sense of humility and competence in rescue mission administration. He added that the Deputy Governor has salvaged the plight of the downtrodden through his empowerment programmes.
In the same vein the others who spoke eulogised Prince Madumere for daring to be different by living out a the true style of a servant leader who does not lord himself over others. Among those who spoke are, Hon. Chinagorom Christopher, Jerry Opara, Mrs. Maureen Chioma, Ben Walter Chukwuemeka, one of the beneficiaries of Madumere Skill acquisition programmes among others.
The highpoint of the programme was the called on the Deputy Governor to declare for governorship in 2019. Prince Madumere in return asserted that he is not pursuing a personal course as the Deputy Governor of Imo State but rather doing everything humanly possible to ensure Governor Okorocha’s administration fulfills it’s electoral promises to the people of the State.
He urged the group to continue to pray for Governor Okorocha with other leaders for God’s wisdom and guidance in all their decisions.
