A group under the aegis of Imo Youth Parliament on Wednesday honoured the Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere, in recognition of his leadership qualities.
Madumere was awarded the Icon of Humility when the group paid him a courtesy call in his office at the Government House, Owerri, Imo State.
The leader of the group, William Opara, extolled Madumere for his virtues, commitment and loyalty to the successes so far achieved the Rescue Mission Government in Imo State.
Opara said the group arrived at the choice of Madumere after a relentless search, adding that he met their outlined requisite leadership qualities.
He described him as a role model to the youth, adding that Madumere’s commitment and loyalty to the success of Governor Rochas Okorocha and his Rescue Mission Administration is unequaled.
Opara however appealed for Prince Madumere’s support in their bid to hold memorial lectures in honour of some of the late notable Imo State leaders who left lasting legacies with a view to psyching the younger generation to reach for greater height.
In the same vein, the Councillor of the group, Hon. Emma Duru, opined that the group came on board since 1999 and draws its membership from graduates.
He assured Madumere of their resolve to support the Imo State Government.
In his response, the Imo State Deputy Governor thanked the group for finding him worthy for honour of such magnitude.
He assured them he will not disappoint them by not changing his character.
He used the forum to advice the youth to shun any character that brings them to disrepute but to imbibe the spirit of hard work, patience and determination wherever they find themselves.
