I’mo state judgement Uche Secondus leads protest against Supreme Court
Leaders the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as well as some of it’s party members have protested against Supreme Court judgement removing Emeka Ihedioha as Imo state governor.
Some of the PDP leaders at the protest include the PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus; the 2019 Vice-President candidate, Peter Obi; and the Senate Minority Leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe.
PDP also described the Supreme Court under Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Tanko Mohammed as “heavily compromised” and lacking in “credibility”. The party has not accepted the sack of their candidate since the ruling last week.
This was the outcome of the emergency meeting called by the PDP NWC to deliberate on the apex court’s judgement sacking the party’s candidate in the March 9, 2019 election, Emeka Ihedioha, and declaring the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Sen. Hope Uzodinma the winner of the election.
National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus read the decision of the NWC in a press conference held at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja on Thursday.
According to Secondus, the judgement of the apex court constitutes “miscarriage of justice”.
“Our party has it in good authority that Justice Tanko and his panel are working on instruction from certain forces in the Presidency to use the Supreme Court to take over states lawfully won by the PDP and award them to the APC,” he said.
