The Supreme Court has nullified the election of Emeka Ihedioha as the governor of Imo state. The seven-member panel of justices today held that Ihedioha was not duly elected as governor.
The apex court declared Hope Uzodinma of the APC as the winner of the March 9th, 2019 governorship election.
In the judgment which was read by Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun, the apex court ordered that the certificate of return issued to Ihedioha be immediately withdrawn and a fresh certificate of return should be issued to Uzodinma. The court also directed that Uzodinma must be immediately sworn in as Governor.
Hope Uzodima was Senator of the federal republic of Nigeria.
