He had the chance to go to the Senate at the detriment of the people of Imo State, but Prince Eze Madumere MFR, chose the wellbeing and liberation of Ndi Imo first, before himself.
A few days ago, the former governor Rochas Okorocha, who suffers from diarrhea of the mouth, in his desperation to disparage the constantly rising and generally accepted personality of Prince Eze Madumere, out of the figment of his vindictive imagination, made some very ridiculous comments against the former Deputy Governor.
It didn’ t come as a surprise. Okororcha was simply expressing his bitterness, at the man who stopped him from converting Imo State into a family business.
Okororcha did everything humanly possible to get Prince Eze Madumere on his side. He offered him the Owerri Senate ticket of the party, amongst other things, hoping to buy Prince Eze Madumere’ s conscience.
He failed, and that’ s why he is bitter till date.
Okororcha knew that if he had Prince Eze Madumere by his side, there would not have been an opposing APC Coalition, and his plan to install Uche Nwosu, would have gone hitch free.
Okororcha is still reeling with the reality, that Prince Eze Madumere stopped him from enslaving Imo people.
Prince Eze Madumere proved himself a lover of his people. For Ndi Imo, he took a political bullet, jettisoning his chance to be in the Senate today, to become the Sacrificial Lamb, to rescue his people.
Prince Eze Madumere stood strong against an almost despotic Chief Executive, without thinking about himself, or the consequences of failure.
Had he failed to unseat Okororcha and his son- in- law, Madumere would probably have been sent into exile from Imo State. He would most likely lose all his property in the State, as excuses would be found to either demolish, or confiscate his property.
Prince Eze Madumere was faced with all these personal risks, but he soldiered on, and led the charge that became the APC Coalition, which eventually saw the removal of Uche Nwosu from the APC, chasing him to AA, and ultimately saw to his eventual defeat at the polls.
Prince Eze Madumere had made his mark for the people of Imo State, and has selflessly presented himself as the Sacrificial lamb, for Imo liberation from the Okororcha family.
Between Rochas Okorocha and Prince Eze Madumere, Imo people know who is electable, and whose time has run out.
Okororcha should pay more attention in finding a way to save himself and his family, from likely jail term, instead of talking about people that have long moved on.
