People calling me a Supreme Court governor are ignorant - Uzodinma
Hope Uzodinma

The Imo state governor, Hope Uzodinma has described people calling him a Supreme Court governor as ignorant.

The governor who made the statement during an interview on Channels TV on Friday, September 25, argued that he emerged as governor of the state through legitimate means.

He pointed out that he was not the first person to have been favoured by a Supreme Court ruling, describing it as the height of ignorance to refer to him like that.

He said:

“It is the height of ignorance because they don’t know what they are saying. There is a reason for the Supreme Court. In the doctrine and principle of democracy, the law expected that there would be grievances and malpractices in the electoral process.”

He insisted that he got justice at the Supreme Court just like other candidates had done in the past and questioned why his case was being viewed differently.

The governor said:

“Human beings voted and the votes were not counted. I went to the Supreme Court and INEC was unable to explain why they did not enter the result. It was a simple judgment. The Supreme Court said INEC was wrong.”

Meanwhile, the Imo state government has dismissed a report claiming that Governor Hope Uzodinma rejected the outcome of the Edo state governorship election.

The report which surfaced on Monday, September 21, had alleged that the governor said the Edo state election was marred by irregularities.

But in a swift reaction on twitter, the Imo state government distanced itself from the report, describing it as fake news.
