BY NKECHI NAECHE—Despite Gov Rochas Okorocha endorsement of his Son- Inlaw, the Deputy Governor of Imo, Mr Eze Madumere, has said he would pursue his governorship ambition for the race to government house come 2019.
This is coming on the heels of governor Okorocha declaration some weeks ago announced in the state that his son in-law and current Chief of Staff to him, Mr Uche Nwosu, would succeed him as governor in 2019.
According to statement released by his Media aide, Madumere said that no amount of opposition from the governor would make him to lose sight of the ambition.
He said “God is the giver of power and decider of destiny and no man born of a woman can stop my ambition.
“I think that from the wealth of my experience as a seasoned administrator both in public and private sectors, I am the most qualified to take Imo state to the next level.’’
Madumere, however, revealed that the “greatest opposition’’ to his ambition was from people he nurtured politically.
He said he was betrayed by people he brought into politics, but stressed that no level of betrayal or sabotage could stop him from the governorship race.
