Imo Deputy Governor Detained

Eze Madumere, Deputy Governor of Imo State has explained why he was arrested and detained in the United States of America.

His Media Aide, Uche Onwuchekwa revealed that… “The Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere, has never been convicted of any civil matter, let alone, theft. We are pained to state that the two occasions that the Deputy Governor had to go through the pains of losing his freedom in detention were all in the course of saving Owelle Rochas Okorocha from public disgrace.”

“It will be recalled that Prince Madumere, shortly after Achike Udenwa’s victory at the polls in 1999, had to face contempt of Court for failure to make it to the court.”

“He was in detention in the United States for about one month all because he was delayed by Governor Okorocha. To the glory of God, Prince Madumere was acquitted of any wrongdoing.”

“The second time he had to stoop low so that Governor Okorocha might be spared the humiliation of getting incarcerated, Prince Madumere again yielded and was detained for almost two months on phony charges, which he was also absolved of.”

“By our records, the Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere, has never abdicated any of his responsibilities. There are laid down procedures through which a Deputy Governor or any member of the executive Council can be invited for Executive Council Meeting.”

“We hereby state that the Deputy Governor has never been invited for such meetings, either through a memo or via any official notices and thereby cannot stand against the deputy governor within the period in review.”

“Refusal to attend, and to hold meetings with the governor is to say the least, another exercise in triviality as the deputy governor cannot force himself on the governor, especially when he has been tagged a pariah in the government circle.”

“To this extent, where the Deputy Governor’s inputs are needed, there are right procedures through which he could be reached. The most embarrassing among the spurious allegations is the annoying allegation of concealment of felonious conduct affecting the presentation of self as eligible candidate of office of Deputy Governor of Imo State.”
