Uzodinma May Pick Madumere as Deputy
Uzodinma who is the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) may pick the current deputy governor as he has been recommended for his role in the party and present position as deputy governor.
Madumere is currently the deputy governor to Rochas Okorocha in Imo state.
Based on reports from Daily Trust, Madumere’s role in the Imo APC Restoration Coalition otherwise known as the Allied Forces was said to be the biggest consideration in his choice.
It was reported that Madumere was chosen after many names had been presented, because of his calm disposition.
He was also considered because of what was perceived as his role in providing stability to the Okorocha administration and his wider reach.
His choice is also geared towards assuaging the anger of Owerri zone, which presented eight aspirants in the last governorship primaries but failed to get the ticket over their inability to arrive at a consensus candidate.
Madumere’s media aide, Uche Onwuchekwa speaking about the possible development said:“Well we are watching, but the prospect cannot be ruled out. Remember his role in the coalition and the fact that he was one of the forerunners in the governorship primary election.”
