The people Democratic Party (PDP), in Imo State has lashed out at the Supreme Court for voiding the election of Rf. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha and his deputy, Gerald Irona.
The party described the apex court’s verdict as atrocious, unbelievable, ridiculous and an annihilation of democracy.
Arising from a meeting at the weekend, the party said it is difficult to understand why the court voided the lawful election of its, candidate, Ihedioha and awarded victory to Sen. Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
The party wondered how the Supreme Court arrived at its verdict, even to the point that the seven panelists who sat on the appeal gave a unanimous judgment.
In a statement signed by Publicity Secretary, Damian Oparah, the party described as shocking that the Supreme Court by its judgment said that all the votes from the alleged 388 polling units were for the APC alone, in an election that was contested by over 60 candidates.
It dismissed the judgment as unfair, unjust and provocative but advised her teeming supporters to remain law-abiding in the face of this adversity and extreme provocation.
