Okorocha said that the event did not, in any way translate, into a ceremony to endorse Madumere as would-be governor of Imo State.
Describing Mudumere as his son in whom he was well pleased, Okorocha said that his joy as a father was to see his son rise in positions of authority.
The governor recalled that his deputy had remained with him in times of joy, difficulties and failure.
Mudumere was a chief of staff to Okorocha before he elevated him to the position of deputy governor.
He commended the writer of the 186-page book titled: “Eze Madumere, A True Manifestation of a Loyal Prince,” for doing a good job, adding, however, that nobody can tell the story of his deputy than himself (Okorocha).
In his remark, the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Umaru Ganduje, praised Madumere for demonstrating high level of loyalty to his boss.
He said that for state to move forward, there must be cordial relationship between governor and his deputy.
