Deputy Governor of Imo State, Eze Madumere, has called on the leadership and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state to celebrate the current political saga in the state, involving his embattled principal, Governor Rochas Okorocha.
Madumere stated this yesterday while addressing a cross-section of APC faithful from his Mbaitoli local government area.
He charged them to join hands to rebuild and re position the party.
The Deputy Governor commended his party members for their resolute to rid the party of unpatriotic elements, including Rochas Okorocha who he described as a man who after ‘eating a meal served him by the people of Imo state, chose not to say thank them but instead broke the plate they served him the food’.
The deputy governor insisted that APC never lost any elections in Imo but that the party was interested in producing a leadership that would stand for the people, empathize with the people and ultimately change their situation from worse to better.
“The truth is that we did not lose any election. Posterity will remember us well because we said no to bad leadership. We are on the side of the people. Our people surely will be appreciative of our effort in the journey to liberate our state from hands of the Emperor.
“It is true that we are not on the saddle today but we are rest assured that our people would always remember what we had to do to ensure they are not perennially enslaved and that their spirits are conquered by whims and caprices of just one man with his family,” he stressed.
Madumere, therefore, advised all the members not to leave the party, saying that the party remains in the mainstream having won the presidency and also in strong control of the National Assembly.
He also hinted that he will join hands with other forward-looking leaders of the party to rebuild and reposition the party against future elections, insisting that APC was the best thing that had happened to Nigeria by its policies.
