2 Years Ago, I Reclaimed Imo People’s Mandate At The Supreme Court -Hope Uzodinma Celebrates
The Imo State governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma has marked the second anniversary of the Supreme Court judgment which instated him as the governor of the state.
Recall that the 2019 Imo State gubernatorial election held on March 9, with PDP’s Emeka Ihedioha polling 38.29% of the total votes, defeating APC’s Uche Nwosu who got 26.66% of popular votes, and several minor party candidates.
According to the results released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Ihedioha won 11 out of 27 LGAs, making him the winner of the guber race, while Nwosu won 10.
The Tribunal, including the court of appeal had affirmed Ihedioha as the winner of the election. However the supreme court on January 14, 2020 nullified the election of Ihedioha as the state governor while declaring Uzodinma of the APC as governor.
Marking the second anniversary, Governor Uzodinma wrote;
“Two years ago, today, justice was delivered to Ndi Imo as I reclaimed our people’s mandate at the Supreme Court. As a product of justice, I have continued to uphold the same values under the #sharedprosperity mandate of our government to secure our common patrimony for all.”
