The All Progressives Congress (APC) has congratulated Hope Uzodinma over the Supreme Court’s declaration that he is the rightful winner of the 2019 Imo state Governorship election.
The Apex court on Tuesday annulled the election of Emeka Ihedioha and asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to immediately issue certificate of return to Senator Uzodinma.
Lanre Issa-onilu, APC National Publicity Secretary in a statement said even as the party is still wondering why it lost elections it clearly won in Zamfara State at the Supreme Court and how the same court ruled the party out of the electoral race in Rivers State, it has never, as a political party, lost faith in the judiciary.
“We salute Senator Hope Uzodinma, our supporters and members for their temperance displayed in the aftermath of the blatant rigging of the Imo Governorship election. We chose to focus on the judicial route to reclaim the Party’s mandate. We are confident that our other stolen electoral mandates will be restored by the courts.
“The APC calls on all Imo State APC stakeholders to come together in support of Senator Uzodinma to ensure the success of the Party’s Next Level agenda and to democratically entrench the APC in the state and entire South East”, he stated.
