49 Hearty Gbosa For A Performing Deputy Governor By Aku Obidinma
As our society continues to evolve towards a democratic direction,so have the people equally continued to localize most of our borrowed practices to give them the real Naija colouring so as to make them clearly understandable and fitting to our indeginous social system. In the 90’s, owing to the military dictatorship in our polity at that time, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) led a charismatic social and attitudinal revolution among the youths of Nigeria as part of the process of resisting the Junta governments. It is within this period that the language of ‘Gbosa’ was introduced to represent a superlative applaud accorded to one in appreciation of great achievement(s).
On the 4th of July 2013, the amiable and easy going Deputy Governor of Imo state, His Excellency, Prince Eze Madumere will be clocking 49 years on planet earth. This particular birthday stands out amongst those he has had in the past owing to the fact that he is not just marking 49 years as a Deputy Governor but as the youngest Deputy Governor in Nigeria. In few days, moreso, this humble and unassuming young Deputy Governor will be clocking 100 days in office, which clearly makes him a man on appointment with destiny.
While very many other politicians will throw big parties at a high cost for the state with public funds, the Deputy Governor rather chose to celebrate his birthday with the motherless children and the prisoners in a less noisy manner. The import of this singular decision of His Excellency in the healing , rehabilitating and restoration of confidence in the minds of these members of the rejected segment of our society cannot be measured. This attitude of His Excellency has truely exposed the reason why he emerged as a loved Chairman of the Imo state chapter of the Nigeria Red Cross Society. Under his leadership, the Society has been completely reorganized and are now touching lives more than any other time in the history of her existence in the state.
As an arch apostle of the Rescue Mission with whom His Excellency Governor Rochas Okorocha is well pleased with, the Deputy Governor since assumption of office has tremendously restored sanity and respect to the office of Deputy Governor by ensuring that due process are diligently observed in the business of governance in the state. With support from His Excellency he has completly revamped the Deputy Governor’s office and lodge, which was previously a shadow of what it is now with every facility in maximum function, thus converting the once deserted office to a behive of human activities. Unlike any other Deputy Governor in the history of our state, the Deputy Governor in his easy going style has demistified the office of the Deputy Governor by making himself accessible to even the least in our society. His all inclusive approach to politics has made him appreciative of even the worst of criticisms. He has severally had dinner or breakfast with most ardent critics of the government affording both parties the avenue for better understanding of each other. Prince Eze Madumere has also empowered people through various forms of employment so has he taken upon his shoulders to provide means of survival to poor students beyond the shores of Imo State. In his home LGA, Mbaitoli, where his people bestowed the Ogbuhoro Uzo (pathfinder) title on him, his philantropic strides which, today is taking care of hundreds of less privileged women, youths and children is worthy of commendation.
The avalanche of encomium and commendations raining on the Deputy Governor within this period of his birthday is merely a reflection of his endearing personality which politically has made him a bride that everybody wants to court. His maestric administrative potentials is responsible for his new assignment as the coordinator of the South East Deputy Governors in Nigeria. Generally in Imo he is seen as the midwive who ensured His Excellency Owelle Rochas Okorocha delivered the rescue mission baby safely.
As a veteran student activist, I hereby fire forty nine loud GBOSA for His Excellency and wish him a very happy birthday and the blessings of God as he continues to grow from grace to grace.
