Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will be heading back to the Supreme Court on Monday January 27, for a review of the judgement which sacked him as the Governor of Imo State and declared Senator Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as governor of the state.

Speaking at a Press Conference on Sunday January 26, Ihedioha’s associate Dr. Manzo Abubakar who queried the judgement said it might go down in infamy and make the country a laughing stock in the comity of nations. 

Manzo who stated that the Supreme Court Judgement denied the Imo people the opportunity to chose its leader, pointed out that the constitution was clear on how a governorship candidate can be declared winner of any election. ‘

According to him, a governorship candidate must not only get the majority of total votes cast but also 1/4 of the votes in 2/3 of the local governments of the state. 

Manzo said; 

“The judgment will go down in infamy and may make Nigeria a laughing stock in the comity of nations, if not reviewed. 

“It is axiomatic that nowhere in the petition or evidence did the petitioner, (Uzodinma) claim that he met the constitutional requirement of spread to be declared the winner.

“To err is human. It would be practically impossible for any human to have read briefs and record of proceedings exceeding 5000 pages in the matter within 2 hours after hearing, when it also had pressure of time to deliver judgment in the remaining pending governorship appeals. No doubt, this accounted for the mistakes made by the Supreme court. 

“The Supreme Court is supreme and can creatively reinvent it’s rules to do justice. It is necessary do so now more that ever to save Nigerian democracy, constitutionalism and retrieve the judicial and justice system from its present opprobrium”.
