Governor Emeka Ihedioha of Imo State has reportedly wept in his office after the Supreme Court declared Senator Hope Uzodinma the duly elected governor of the state.
reports reaching our news desk has it that the Supreme Court of Nigeria headed by Justice Tanko Muhammad has sacked the incumbent, Governor Emeka Ihedioha from office.
The seven-man panel of the apex court in a unanimous decision held
that Ihedioha did not win the majority of votes cast at the March 9
In the Judgment delivered by Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun, the court
accordingly ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to
withdraw the Certificate of Return issued to Ihedioha and issue a fresh
Certificate of Return to the candidate of the APC on grounds that he won
the majority of lawful votes cast at the election.
The court held that the lower courts erred in law when it rejected evidence tendered before them to the extent that votes from 388 polling units were not credited to the APC and Hope Uzodinma.
It could be recalled by the ardent followers and believers of Fr Ejike Mbarka that on the 31st of December 2019, in a cross over night mass at the Adoration ground, Fr Mbaka had made a prophecy that Hope Uzordimma will be taking over as the Governor of Imo State.
This prophecy met several criticism especially from the followers of Emeka Ihedioha. surfice is to say here that the Supreme Court’s Judgement had laid credence to this pronouncement by Fr. Mbarka.
Reacting to the news, Mr Chinedu Ugo, an honourable member in Aboh Mbaise Local Government Area in a telephone interview laments on how Emeka Ihedioha on resumption in office as the executive governor of Imo State, had disolved the council whose members were duely elected. He was of the opinion that the hand of God is in the sacking of Emeka Ihedioha, saying that God had answered thier prayers. He was of high hopes that they will soon get back to the council.
What now for Emeka Ihedioha and the Generality of Mbaise people. ( Ummunne Governor) .
we are weeping!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
