The newly-declared governor of Imo state, Hope Uzodinma, has reacted to lSupreme Court judgement on Tuesday which sacked Gov Emeka Ihedioha

The apex court while delivering judgement declared APC’s Hope Uzodinma as the Governor of Imo State.

It, therefore, ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to withdraw the certificate of return from Ex-Governor Emeka Ihedioha and issue Uzodinma with certificate of return as governor of the state.

Delivering the judgment, Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun said the votes due to Uzodinma and APC from 318 polling units were wrongly excluded and should be added.

“This meant that the victory given to me by the people, but denied me, has been restored.
