Emeka Ihedioha says his calmness over the Supreme Court judgement that sacked him as Imo State governor on Tuesday is born out of shock.
Mr. Ihedioha said this on Saturday when Uche Secondus, national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), led a delegation of the party’s national working committee to his Abuja residence.
According to him, the ruling is beyond Imo, noting that it will define the country’s electoral system.
He said, “We are as shocked as yourselves. That event will define our electoral system. It is at the foundation of our electoral processes.
“It is not about Imo State but about our electoral processes. We are clam, calmness out of shock.”
Secondus, who had earlier called on the supreme court to reverse its judgement, pointing out that the figures with which Uzodinma was declared winner did not add up.
“We know that the Supreme Court is the end. What we seek in the case of Imo State is for the Supreme Court to reverse (the judgement). We are saying that figures are not adding up, can they look at it again? We are a nation governed by laws,” he said.
The Supreme Court had decided on Tuesday that Hope Uzodinma, who came a distant fourth, is the winner of the 2019 Imo governorship election.
