Uzodinma speaks on those calling him ‘Supreme Court Governor’


Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has again commented on those who call him Supreme Court Governor.

the saying arose from the dramatic way in which the apex court removed the Peoples Democratic Party’s Emeka Ihedioha and installed him, though he finished third in the state’s governorship election.

In an interview on ‘Channels Television’ on Friday, he described those using the slogan as ignorant.

He said:
“It is the height of ignorance because they don’t know what they are saying. There is a reason for the Supreme Court. In the doctrine and principle of democracy, the law expected that there would be grievances and malpractices in the electoral process.

“When this happens, the only legitimate right you have is to seek redress at the court. And of course, the court determines. Remember that this is not the first time, so many elections had held where the candidates went to court and they got justice. So, why will mine be different?

“Human beings voted and the votes were not counted. I went to the Supreme Court and INEC was unable to explain why they did not enter the result. It was a simple judgment. The Supreme Court said INEC was wrong.”
