The Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere, has told the Governor of the State, Rochas Okorocha that no man can stop him from becoming Governor of the state come 2019.
He reassured Imo people that only God can stop him from becoming the next governor of the state.
Madumere who is aiming for Imo number one seat under the All Progressives Congress, APC, is facing a stiff challenge from Okorocha’s son-in-law and Chief of Staff, Uche Nwosu.
He spoke while addressing a section of leaders from the Local Government Areas in the state yesterday.
He said, “I will pursue my gubernatorial ambition to a logical conclusion. I am in the race to serve Imo people of Imo State.
“I have the requisite leadership qualities and vision to take the State to a greater height.”
Madumere said he is “a seasoned administrator with many years of experience in private and public sector”, adding that Imo people are highly enlightened and must be carried along in policy formulation and implementation.
The Deputy Governor said his betrayal from those he managed and nurtured to lime light in politics was like that of the Lord Jesus Christ.
He, however, vowed that no man born of a woman can stop his ambition.
“I rely not in any man no matter how highly placed. I have taken my destiny in my hands. I have God and the people of Imo State.
“God has always granted me the grace to carry on.
“I have no regret because it has made me even stronger in my bid to make the difference in changing the tide for the people.
“Any development that does not trickle down to the masses is a misplaced priority,” he added.
