Imo Residents Grumble Over Emergence Of Three Deputy Governors On 8 Years

IMO State State Governor, Rocha's Okorocha


A cross section of the people of Imo State have reacted to the recent political development in the state whereby the state Governor, Rochas  Okprocha caused the removal of his deputy, Prince Eze Madumere and replacing him with Mr Callistus Ekenze.

This new appointment brings to three the number of deputy governors he has appointed since he became the governor of the state.

Reacting to the latest appointment, some of the people spoken to said that the desire of any state governor to keep changing his deputies like where a woman changes her wrapper every time is madness and a case of gross abuse of the system.

They questioned if a governor is in the habit of changing his deputy, when will he settle down to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people .

The people noted that in the entire federation, Governor Okorocha is the only governor who has changed his deputy three times in eight years of his administration.

Also vexing according to the people is the constant disobedience of the rule of law and court orders and the manipulation of the state House of Assembly to achieve his selfish aims.

In his own comment, a frontline politician and lawyer in the state, Chief Gebriel Otti said this is abuse of democracy by the governor.
