Ihedioha Still In Shock Over Supreme Court Ruling
Recently sacked governor of Imo state, Emeka Ihedioha says he is still shocked by the ruling of the supreme court which installed Hope Uzodinma as the duly elected governor of the state.
The former deputy speaker of the House of representatives stated this when Uche Secondus, national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), led a delegation of the party’s national working committee to his Abuja residence on Saturday.
The Supreme Court had ordered the return of Hope Uzodinma, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the governor.
“We are as shocked as yourselves. That event will define our electoral system. It is at the foundation of our electoral processes,” Ihedioha said.
“It is not about Imo State but about our electoral processes. We are clam, calmness out of shock.”
Secondus who had earlier called on the supreme court to reverse its judgement said the figures which Uzodinma was declared winner did not add 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,” Secondus said.
