Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha has explained reasons for not recognising Eze Madumere as the deputy governor of the state despite a high court ruling nullifying the state House of Assembly’s impeachment of Madumere a few weeks ago.
In a statement yesterday signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam
Onwuemeodo, the governor said his reason for not recognising Madumere
was because the state government and the state House of Assembly
appealed against the matter at the appellate court.
The governor, who accused Madumere of declaring war against him,
stressing: “Madumere declared war against his benefactor or mentor
because he wanted to be governor.
“It is left for the public to ask Madumere why he is still keen in
working with Governor Okorocha as his deputy after he had tried in vain
to paint the same man black,” he said.“To us, Madumere remains impeached
as deputy governor until the appeal against the judgment of the high
court that is in his favour is decided.”
