Those people calling me 'Supreme Court Governor' are ignorant- Governor Hope Uzodinma


Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo state has described Nigerians pertaining to him as a 'Supreme Court governor' as ignorant.

The governor said this when he appeared on Channels TV on Friday, September 25.

When he was asked how he feels when people call him a Supreme Court governor, Uzodinma said

It is the height of ignorance because they don’t know what they're saying. there's a reason for the Supreme Court. within the doctrine and principle of democracy, the law expected that there would be grievances and malpractices within the electoral process.

When this happens, the sole legitimate right you've got is to seek redress at the court. And after all, the court determines. Remember that this is often not the first time, numerous elections had held where the candidates went to court and they got justice. So, why will mine vary.

Human beings voted and the votes weren't counted. I went to the Supreme Court and INEC was unable to elucidate why they didn't enter the result. it had been a simple judgment. The Supreme Court said INEC was wrong.

Recall that on January 14, 2020, the Supreme court removed Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party as governor of the state on grounds that he didn't score the lawful majority votes within the Imo governorship race. The court said it received that call after adding votes scored by Uzodinma in 388 polling units, which showed that he won the race.

It subsequently declared Uzodinma the winner of the election and ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to offer him a Certificate of Return as elected Imo governor.

Ihedioha, however, returned to the Supreme Court with a view to seeking a review of the judgement that removed him from office but failed.
