The Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere, has dissociated himself from the rumoured reconciliation move between him and Governor Rochas Okorocha.
The reconciliation meeting was said to have been put together by the Governor’s family members.
Madumere described this as a mere figment of the imagination of the peddler.
The Deputy Governor’s assertion was contained in a statement made available to newsmen in Owerri, Imo State by his media aide, Uche Onwuchekwa.
According to the statement, Madumere, who is in the same All Progressives Congress with Okorocha, expressed astonishment over the rumour, saying he only got to know about this through barrage of calls and text messages by concerned Imo State citizens.
He described such move as unnecessary and uncalled for, as he submitted that there is nothing on the table to call for such reconciliation.
He further explained that he had only disagreed with his boss and friend of many years on principle, with the resolve to pursue his goal of impacting positively on the citizenry in concert with best leadership practices.
He therefore charged his numerous supporters and Imolites to discountenance such insinuations coming from rumour mills and kite fliers, pointing out: “This is a form of distraction, and I would not fall for such cheap blackmail.”
