Imo State Governor,

Okorocha however added that he will not be succeeded by his deputy, Eze Madumere.

The governor made the comments on Thursday, October 6, during the launch of a book titled: “Eze Madumere: A True Manifestation of a Loyal Prince” in Owerri.

“I have not decided who will be the next Governor of Imo state. I want to also tell you that, this is not a launch for a path for Madumere as the incoming governor of the state,” he said according to Vanguard.

“I want to say this before you start to distort the political landscape of Imo State. But he is my son in whom I am well pleased. I have confidence in him. The joy of an aging father is to see the son rising,” he added.
