Former national assembly deputy speaker Emeka Ihedioha

Governor Emeka Ihedioha of Imo State has applauded the Court of Appeal judgment which confirmed him as the winner of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primary election held last year.

The governor through his Chief of Staff, Chris Okewulonu, described the judgment as “victory for due process, rule of law and the good people of Imo State.”

Concise News reports that the appellate court on Sunday dismissed the appeal brought by the immediate past senator representing Imo West in the National Assembly, Samuel Anyanwu.

Anyanwu had asked the Court to nullify the victory of Ihedioha and declared him as the authentic winner of the primary election.

He had accused Ihedioha of engaging thuggery, which he claimed, swayed the polls in his favour.

Also, recall that the lower court had earlier dismissed the same suit.

Reacting further, Okewulonu urged other litigants still at the tribunal to withdraw their cases against Ihedioha in the interest of the State.

He said, “Ihedioha’s victory is divine and anybody who truly loves Imo should desist from distracting the incumbent administration”.

He commended the judiciary for its forthrightness and reaffirming the wish of PDP members, who entrusted Ihedioha with their mandate.

Okewulonu said that the governor would run an all-inclusive administration which would meet the yearnings and aspirations of Imo people.
