The All Progressives Congress’ (APC) chieftain, Nze Stanley Onuoha, has said that if the party was in interested in winning 2019 governorship election in Imo state, APC must make frantic effort to ensure that former deputy governor of the state, Prince Eze Madumere was made its standard bearer.
Onuoha, who said this while interaction with newsmen in Owerri, the capital city of the State, described Madumere as eminently equipped with the needed leadership character and administrative acumen to re-launch the state on the path of development.
According to him, serious business of governance should not be left in the hands of mediocre and fun seekers who would end up compounding already sorry state of the state.
He, however, urged members of the party not to sell their conscience for paltry sums of money from their common wealth, saying that those who may yield were only bringing curses upon themselves and their family.
Onuoha said: “As a loyal party man, to say the truth, Madumere has the acceptability, followership because of his untainted antecedents. He understands what leadership is all about with his strength character. The man is humble, content and an all-round performer who will utilize Imo money and other resources to work for them. I can’t imagine myself falling for this nauseating idea of presenting a candidate who does not even understand himself; who lacks self-control to be presented to the people of Imo State as APC flag bearer. We don’t want accomplices and those whose pasts are questionable. That is why we are supporting Madumere.”
