Eze Madumere, Imo State New Deputy Governor

Prince Eze Madumere Has Been Sworn In As The 6th Deputy Governor Of Imo State.

Speaking at the swearing in ceremony which took place at the Sam Mbakwe expanded exco chambers, in the Imo state Government house, Governor Okorocha charged the newly sworn in deputy Governor to imbibe the spirit of sacrifice to enable him succeed and make an impact in his new calling.

Speaking further, Okorocha said that the swearing in coincided with the easter celebration which naturally is a period to emulate the sacrifice of Christ in which he gave his life for the people and enjoined all other political office holders to always do same. He warned him against the temptation of using his office to accumulate wealth adding that his new appointment is one of service and not a money making venture.

He however wished him well and also assured him of his maximum support to enable him carry out his official responsibilities.

Earlier in his address, the newly sworn in deputy Governor, Prince Eze Madumere said that his elevation to the office of the deputy Governor was one born out of circumstances as he was very comfortable with his job as the chief of staff to the Governor.

He maintained that despite the challenging task that comes with the office, he expressed optimism that he will succeed having closely worked with the governor and understands the theory behind the success of the present rescue mission administration which he will bring to bear.

Eze Madumere pledged his total loyalty to the governor but also went ahead to call for the maximum co operation of the entire government and people of the state while wishing the immediate past deputy governor, Jude Agbaso well in all his future endeavours.

Meanwhile, all those who spoke at the end of the ceremony expressed enthusiasm that the deputy Governor will succeed in office, citing his humility and readiness to always take up challenges but also re echoed the Governor’s call for him to eschew the temptation of enmassing wealth instead of using his office to better the lots of Imolites.
