The Imo State governor-elect, Senator Hope Uzodinma, has hailed Tuesday decision by the Supreme Court, saying his stolen mandate has been recovered.
Mr. Uzodinma said this through his spokesperson, Declan Emelumba, shortly after the apex court declared him the duly elected governor of the state.
According to him, the court had demonstrated bravery.
The governor-elect accused the Peoples Democratic Party of not having good plans for the state.
“The Supreme Court has declared Senator Hope Uzodinma as the duly elected governor of Imo State. The beautiful thing is that our stolen mandate has been recovered.
“The governor will arrive in Imo State on Wednesday and he will address the people of the state. He has better plans for the people of the state. He is experienced and the state is in for good things,” he said.
The Supreme Court had, in a unanimous judgement earlier annulled the election victory of governor Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and declared Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) winner of the March 19, 2019 governorship election in Imo.
