Imo: Supreme Court Declares Uzodinma Winner, Sacks Ihedioha


The Supreme Court, in a unanimous judgement by a seven-man panel of justices that was led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Tanko Muhammad, held that Emeka Ihedioha who contested on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was not duly elected.

Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun who delivered the lead judgement declared Senator Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress, APC, as the valid winner of the governorship contest that held in Imo state on March 9, 2019

The Supreme Court, therefore, ordered the immediate withdrawal of the Certificate of Return that was issued to Ihedioha.

It ordered that a fresh Certificate of Return should be issued to Uzodinma forthwith, adding that he should be sworn-in immediately as the governor of Imo state.
