Imo guber: Supreme Court sacks Governor Ihedioha, declares Senator Uzodinma winner – TODAY

A federal lawmaker, Sen. Hope Uzodinma, has called on National Assembly members-elect, particularly those of the All Progressives Congress(APC), to respect the position of the party in choosing their leaders for the Ninth Assembly.

The Supreme Court, on Tuesday, sacked governor Emeka Ihedioha of Imo State.

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

Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun who delivered the lead judgment 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.
