Emeka Ihedioha Heads Back To Supreme Court For Judgement Review

Former Governor of Imo state, Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will be headed back to the Supreme Court today Monday January 27, for a review of the judgement which sacked him as the Governor of Imo State and declared Senator Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Governor of the state.

Speaking at a Press Conference on Sunday January 26, Ihedioha’s associate Dr. Manzo Abubakar who queried the judgement said it might go down in infamy and make the country a laughing stock in the comity of nations.

Manzo who stated that the Supreme Court Judgement denied the Imo people the opportunity to chose its leader, pointed out that the constitution was clear on how a governorship candidate can be declared winner of any election. ‘

According to him, a governorship candidate must not only get the majority of total votes cast but also 1/4 of the votes in 2/3 of the local governments of the state.
