He said: “On behalf of the members of Imo state APC, I heartily felicitate with our indefatigable national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, for his commitment towards exorcising the party of unpatriotic elements."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Madumere may bounce back as the running mate to the APC governorship candidate for the 2019 election in the state, Senator Hope Uzodinma.
Madumere's role in the Imo APC Restoration Coalition otherwise known as the ‘Allied Forces’ that successfully wrested the APC structure from Governor Rochas Okorocha was said to be the biggest consideration in his choice.
Many names were said to have been presented but the choice was reportedly narrowed down to Madumere because of his calm disposition.
