INEC Finally Issues Hope Uzodinma Certificate Of Return


National Commissioner, Mrs May Agbamuche-Mbu (r) presents the Certificate of Return to the New Governor-Elect of Imo State, Mr Hope Uzodinma, following the Supreme Court ruling on 14th January 2020.

Recall that yesterday, The Supreme Court sitting in Abuja held as follows:

“Vote due to the appellant Senator Hope Uzodinma and the APC from 388 Polling Units were wrongly excluded from scores ascribed to the appellant(to them),” the justices ruled. “It is thereby ordered that the appellant votes from 388 Polling Units unlawfully excluded from the appellant vote declared shall be added and that the first respondent, Emeka Ihedioha, was not duly elected by a majority of lawful votes cast at the said election.”

“His return as the elected governor of Imo State is hereby declared null and void and accordingly set aside.

“It is hereby declared that the first appellant (Mr Uzodinma) holds the majority of lawful votes cast at the governorship election held in Imo State on March 9, 2019.”
