Imo state governor, Hope Uzodinma has stated that those who refer to him as ‘Supreme Court Governor’ have little knowledge about the tenets of democracy and law.
Recall that on January 14, 2020, the Supreme court had rejected Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party as governor of the state and declared Uzodinma the winner of the election.
The governor while speaking with Channels TV on Friday, September 25 said only ignorance would make people call him such a name.
“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.
“When this happens, the only legitimate right you have is to seek redress at the court. And of course, the court determines. Remember that this is not the first time, so many elections had held where the candidates went to court and they got justice. So, why will mine be different?
“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.”Photo Credit: Twitter
