Emeka Ihedioha finally Reacted To Supreme Court Judgment
Emeka Ihedioha, the sacked governor of Imo State, says the Supreme Court judgment that declared Hope Uzodinma winner of the just concluded gubernatorial election came to him as a “rude shock”.
It was reported earlier that Supreme Court sacked the sitting governor Emeka Ihedioha and said Hope Uzodinma was the winner of the March 9 election.
Reacting to the judgment in a statement on Wednesday in Owerri, Ihedioha said: “The judgment did not reflect the wishes of the people as expressed on election day; it is unfair.”
I do not agree with the judgment because it did not take care of the sensibility of the people, but my Deputy, Mr. Gerald Irona, and I have no option but to accept the outcome of the verdict.
No doubt, yesterday’s judgment came to us as a rude shock considering the facts on the ground, the legal precedence, and the people’s mandate,” he added.
