Imo Diaspora Coalition Asks Trump To Hang Travel Ban On Supreme Court Justices Over “Atrocious Ruling”


A coalition of Imo indigenes in diaspora, under the auspice of IMO DIASPORA COALITION FOR JUSTICE AND DEMOCRACY, have asked the government of the United States to hang travel ban on justices of “Nigeria’s Disgraceful Partisan Supreme Court” and members of their families for the “judicial coup” they unleashed on Imo people by overturning the landslide electoral victory of Emeka Ihedioha of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and handed it to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Party candidate, Hope Uzodinma, who came a distant fourth position in the election.

This was contained in a petition the group sent to United States president, Donald Trump and Nancy Pelosi, speaker of US House of Representatives.

The coalition urged the US government to sanction these “compromised Justices who delivered this atrocious ruling and who we demand sanctioned, if they fail to reverse their fraudulent judgement.”

The justices are, Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad (CJN), Kudrat Kekere–Ekun, Sylvester Ngwuta, Olukayode Ariwoola, Aminu Sanusi, Amina Augie, and
Uwani Abba-Aji.

Recall that on Tuesday, a panel of Nigerian Supreme Court, led by Tanko (CJN), had sacked Mr. Ihedioha as Imo governor and replaced him with Uzodinma, in a decision seen by majority of Nigeria as shocking.

Senator Uzodinma was sworn in Wednesday as governor. But the controversy surrounding that controversial decision, which also surprised constitutional scholars, is not going away.

Nigerians continue to condemn it on Social Media and the PDP plans a protest march on Sunday to register its displeasure over what it dubbed travesty of justice.

Meanwhile below is the petition Imolites in diaspora sent to president Trump and Speaker Pelosi:


Dear President Trump,

Nigeria’s Disgraceful Partisan Supreme Court Must Reverse Her Recent Perverted Ruling or Be Placed on Visa Ban or no Fly List, Including Members of their Immediate Families.

The Nigeria’s Supreme Court recently in what has been described a “judicial coup”, overturned the landslide Imo State Governorship electoral mandate, given to Rt Hon Emeka Ihedioha of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and handed victory to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Party candidate, Hope Uzodinma, who came a distant fourth position in the election. Imo State is a totally Christian State!

On March 9, 2019, during Nigeria’s gubernatorial elections held in Imo State Nigeria, the incumbent APC Party candidate, Hope Uzodinma lost in this highly Christians concentrated enclave to a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), candidate, former Speaker of the National House of Representatives Rt. Hon Emeka Ihedioha, a Knight of the order of St. Christopher of the Anglican Communion, and three others. According to official figures of the electoral umpire- the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the results were as follows;

1. Accredited voters is =823,743.

2. The total valid votes cast is = 714,355

3. Rejected votes = 25,130

4. Total votes cast (Line 2 Plus 3) is = 739,485

The top four candidates received the following number of votes:

5. Rt Hon Emeka Ihedioha (People’s Democratic Party-PDP) = 273,404 votes

6. Mr Uche Nwosu (Action Alliance -AA) = 190,364 votes.

7. Ifeanyi Ararume (All Progressives Grand Alliance- APGA) = 114,676 votes

8. Hope Uzodinma (All Progressives Congress- APC “Moslem Party”) = 96,458 votes

On the basis of the above the INEC declared Rt Hon Emeka Ihedioha the winner. However, thereafter all the losers went to court, with Hon Ihedioha sustaining his win at the tribunal, and again at the appeal court. Then at the Supreme Court something strange and yet inexplicable happened, the Supreme Court accepted previously tendered and INEC rejected 213,699 votes from Mr Hope Uzodinma, the fourth placed candidate which was adjudged to be fake and unreliable by the trial Tribunal and concurred by the Court of Appeal.
They added these fake votes to the official INEC declared votes for him of 96,458 to give Mr Uzodinma the winning votes of 310,153.

But in a haste to gain foothold in this Christian enclave of Imo State, through their proxy Mr Uzodinma (a notorious character who had been indicted by a Presidential Task Force on fraud for diverting over $11m meant for dredging a government sea port channel and currently has a bench warrant for his arrest issued by an Abuja Magistrate Court for issuance of N200 million naira dud cheque amongst other criminal infractions) they forgot simple Arithmetic.

When that whole fake results were added without adjustment to other figures, it brought the total votes cast to 928,054 , which is not only higher than INEC declared total valid votes cast of 714,355 but total number of accredited voters of 823,743 for the election. Yet, the Supreme Court in a bizarre judgment awarded more votes to the fourth placed candidate, that inflated total votes cast above the number of voters, and made him winner. When confronted in private, two of the justices said, “we were under instructions”.

Nigeria legal system allows for Supreme Court to reverse itself in certain circumstances including where the judgement was obtained by fraudulent representations as in the case herein.

It is based on these that we are calling on the partisan-agenda driven Nigeria’s Supreme court to review and reverse their decision, within ten days, or be sanctioned alongside their immediate families with visa ban and/or put on international No-fly list.

The compromised Justices who delivered this atrocious ruling and who we demand sanctioned, if they fail to reverse their fraudulent judgement are
Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad,
Justice Kudrat Kekere–Ekun,
Justice Sylvester Ngwuta,
Justice Olukayode Ariwoola,
Justice Aminu Sanusi, Amina Augie, and
Justice Uwani Abba-Aji.

We need your intervention Mr. President!

Thank you!
