Former Head of State, Federal Republic of Nigeria, General Jack Yakubu Gowon (Rtd) has joined other prominent Nigerians to extoll Imo Deputy Governor, Prince Eze Madumere for his rare life of service and humility.
General Gowon made this statement on his arrival at the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport Owerri yesterday.
The former Head of State who was stunned by the humble character put up by Prince Madumere could not help passing a comment commending Imo Deputy Governor for his simplicity.
Prince Madumere who had gone on behalf of the Governor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha to receive the former Head of State, Gen. Jack Yakubu Gowon, who was the Guest Lecturer of the 54th Annual Conference of the Nigeria Bar Association, Prince Madumere in his manne decided to handle the protocol and he took time to introduce all.
Former Nigeria’s Head of State could not understand such humility where a Deputy Governor could be so simple to the chagrin of all.
Gen Yakubu in appreciation of such rare character, he said; ” “You are the Deputy Governor and you didn’t act like one. You didn’t stand back to be introduced to me by another person, rather you took up the service of being the one to introduce others to me. What a simple man this is!”
It may be recalled similar remarks have been variously made by numerous leaders including the Governor of Imo state , Owelle Anayo Rochas Okorocha, Archbishop Benneth Okoro and host of others.
