The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that has not lost faith in the judiciary.
This is a reaction to the Supreme Court’s declaration of Senator Hope Uzodinma, the APC governorship candidate in the 2019 Imo state governorship election as the rightful winner of the poll, sacking Emeka Ihedioha who was declared the winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The ruling party in a statement signed by Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, the National Publicity Secretary said losing Zamafar state to the PDP is still a surprise lauded the party faithful for their temperance.
“Even as we are still wondering why we lost elections we clearly won in Zamfara State at the Supreme Court and how the same court ruled our party out of the electoral race in Rivers State, we have never, as a political party, lost faith in the judiciary.
“We salute Senator Hope Uzodinma, our supporters and members for their temperance displayed in the aftermath of the blatant rigging of the Imo Governorship election. We chose to focus on the judicial route to reclaim the Party’s mandate.”
The part further stated that it is confident that its “other stolen electoral mandates will be restored by the courts.”
They, therefore, call on Imo State APC stakeholders to come together in support of Senator Uzodinma to ensure the success of the Party’s Next Level agenda and to democratically entrench the APC in the state and entire South East.
The apex court had on Tuesday annulled the election of Ihedioha and asked INEC to immediately issue a certificate of return to Senator Uzodinma.
