Protesters Shut Down Imo State Over Sack Of Ihedioha


Some supporters of sacked Imo State Governor, Emeka Ihedioha took to the streets of Owerri, the state capital on Sunday to express their anger at the verdict of the Supreme Court.

This is coming ahead of the planned national protest by the PDP in Abuja on Monday.

Bittertruth Media recalls that the apex court had on Tuesday nullified Ihedioha’s victory and ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to return Hope Uzodinma, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the winner of the election.

Uzodinma placed a distant fourth in the results announced by INEC but the supreme court declared him winner based on the APC candidate’s claim that his votes across 388 polling units were annulled.

Uzodinma was sworn-in as the governor of Imo state barely 24 hours after the verdict.

However, the apex court judgement has continued to solicit diverse reactions.
