The All Progressives Congress (APC) has congratulated Senator Hope Uzodinma following his declaration as winner of the March 9, 2019 governorship election in Imo State by the Supreme Court.
The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Lanre Issa-Onilu, in a congratulatory message on Tuesday night said the party never lost hope in the judicial system.
The apex court had in a unanimous decision on Tuesday invalidated the election of Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party as winner of the governorship election in Imo.
In the statement the APC spokesman called on all Imo State APC stakeholders to rally together and support 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 statement said, “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. We are confident that our other stolen electoral mandates will be restored by the courts.”
