The All Progressives Congress (APC) has congratulated Sen. Hope Uzodinma, the candidate of the party for the Imo Guber over his victory at the Supreme Court today as the rightful winner of the 2019 Imo State Governorship election.
In a statement made available to the press, the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Lanre Issa-Onilu, said “even as we are still wondering why we lost elections we clearly won in Zamfara State at the Supreme Court and how the same court ruled our party out of the electoral race in Rivers State, we have never, as a political party, lost faith in the judiciary”.
He therefore salute Senator Hope Uzodinma, supporters and members of the APC for their temperance displayed in the aftermath of what he described as, ‘blatant rigging’ of the Imo Governorship election.
The APC called on all Imo State APC stakeholders to come together in support of Senator Uzodinma to ensure the success of the Party’s Next Level agenda and to democratically entrench the APC in the state and entire South East.
The Supreme court on Tuesday, 14th Jan, 2020 annulled the election of Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha and asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to immediately issue certificate of return to Senator Uzodinma.
