Supreme Court judgement still shocking – Emeka Ihedioha says
Following the decision of the Supreme Court which sacked the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party as the Governor of Imo state, the sacked governor has expressed his shock, saying the January 14th ruling delivered by the Supreme court is a rude shock to him and many Nigerians.
Ihedioha said this while addressing a delegation of PDP chieftains led by its party chairman, Uche Secondus who visited him at his Abuja home this morning.
The sacked governor said that “We are as shocked as yourselves. That event will define our electoral system. It is at the foundation of our electoral processes. It is not about Imo State but about our electoral processes. We are clam, calmness out of shock.”
Reacting to the development, the party chairman, Uche Secondus said that the figures put forward by the Supreme court which enabled it declare Hope Uzodinma winner of the March 9th 2019 election, are not adding up.
“We know that the Supreme Court is the end. What we seek in the case of Imo State is for the Supreme Court to reverse (the judgement). We are saying that figures are not adding up, can they look at it again? We are a nation governed by laws.
“In the case of Imo State, we have more questions than answers because we cannot see the figures adding up. There are many questions agitating our minds and the minds of Nigerians. I want to appeal to our brothers on the other side to stop trivialising issues.”, he said.
