The Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere, has reacted to the report that he has abandoned his office.

Onwuchekwa, who spoke with Vanguard, described the allegation as untrue, adding that his principal was a responsible public officer.
Onwuchekwa said, “The insinuation that the Deputy Governor has abandoned his office is a fat lie. It could only have emanated from mischievous elements.”
He described his boss as “a very responsible public officer, who has been coming to the office when necessary, since his main job of handling boundary issues is in the field.”
Continuing, the Deputy Governor’s SA said that his principal had proved beyond reasonable doubt that “he is a result- oriented public officer, who has never abdicated his official responsibilities.”
