Okorocha gives reasons for disregarding deputy
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.”
