“Orlu zone by May 2019 would have completed 16 years in Douglas House between Governor Okorocha and former Governor, Achike Udenwa. Okigwe zone with Chief Ohakim's four year tenure and that of late Chief Sam Mbakwe, has governed Imo for 8 years but only Owerri zone is left behind despite their support to our sons. I stand here with you people to discountenance injustice. We must enthrone equity in our dealings with our brothers. This time is for Owerri zone and there is no other candidate who has been tested and trusted like Madumere. I am happy for our resolve to support him and I know that with him; with his experience and administrative prowess, Imo will get to its destination”; he enthused.
Ichie Mbanaso called on the people of Orsu to continue to pray for Prince Madumere against what he described as concerted efforts to pull him down, insisting that a good man must be given a chance to change the State for good.
