Okorocha Mentions Calistus Ekenze as Deputy Governor
The Imo State Governor had did not recognize Madumere as the governor of the state, rather, he mentioned Calistus Ekenze, as deputy governor designate.
Describing the little drama as an embarrassing display, Madumere condemned the actions of the governor, pleading that Okorocha be forgiven.
According to Okorocha, his actions was because there is a case in court against the high court judgement that quashed the impeachment of Madumere.
“There is an existing matter at the appeal court against the high court judgement that quashed the impeachment of Madumere by the State House of Assembly.”
A statement by Okorocha’s Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, on Monday, December 3, disclosed that the governor’s action was no oversight.
“As a matter of fact, the failure or inability of the governor to recognise Madumere as the deputy governor of the state at that event was not an oversight.
“That was the proper thing to do because there is an existing appeal at the appeal court against the high court judgement that quashed the impeachment of Madumere by the state House of Assembly,” he said.
