Imo State Deputy Governor, Eze Madumere, has rejected his principal, Governor Rochas Okorocha’s offer to contest for the Imo East Senatorial election in 2019, The Nation has reported.

Madumere has insisted that his mind is made up to contest the governorship election in the state.

Recall that Governor Okorocha had asked his deputy to contest for Senate instead of the governorship election to pave way for the Chief of Staff and his son in-law, Uche Nwosu, who he has endorsed as his successor.

But Madumere who is from Owerri zone which has not produced a governor since the return to democracy in 1999, insisted that he has made up his mind to contest for the office of the governor in 2019.

He vowed that there is no going back on the decision, adding that the ambition is not just about him, but the entire Owerri zone that has been sidelined and marginalized.

The Deputy Governor in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Uche Onwuchekwa, he has chosen his path towards realizing “God’s given vision to better the lot of Imolites”, adding that his fate “is in no man’s hands”.

Describing the Okorocha’s offer as an act of betrayal, the deputy governor, argued that “if Jesus Christ could be ill-treated by those he called his friends and was later betrayed by Judas, how much more a mere mortal like me”.

He said that he has been “molested, betrayed and insulted” by those he nurtured to “become relevant in life”.
