•Embattled Imo Deputy governor, Eze Madumere
Frontline All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) governorship aspirant in Imo State, Barrister Humphrey Anumudu, has berated the decision of the Imo State lawmakers to impeach the deputy governor, Prince Ezeakonobi Madumere, in total disregard to a valid court order, describing it as a misnomer, unlawful, repulsive and a recipe to anarchy.
A statement issued in Owerri by the Humphrey Anumudu Campaign Organisation, signed by the Head, Media/Publicity, Nik Anusiem, said that on July 30, 2018, the Imo State House of Assembly impeached the state deputy governor in spite of a subsisting valid court order forbidding both the impeachment panel and the state lawmakers from taking further actions against the deputy governor.
According to the statement, the rule of law is the major plank for democracy and should be maintained at all times as its absence can only breed dictatorship, adding: “Therefore, every right-thinking citizen should frown at this unlawful action of the Imo State House of Assembly.”
“May our dreams of a renascent Imo state where rule of law, peoples oriented policies and projects as the hallmark happens in 2019, and all these and more are what Barr. Humphrey Anumudu administration shall offer when inaugurated by God grace come 29 may 2019,” the statement declared.
