Former Imo State Governor, Emeka Ihedioha has urged the Supreme Court to nullify the judgment it delivered on January 14, that Hope Uzodinma of All progressive Congress won March 9, 2019 governorship election in Imo State.
Emeka Ihedioha and his political party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) filed the application, lamented that the apex court was deceived by opposition party for delivering such judgment.
The statement reads” “The fraudulent nature of the additional votes was demonstrated by the fact that the total votes cast as shown in the first appellant/respondent’s computation was more than the total number of voters accredited for the election and in some polling units more than the total number of registered voters.
“The fraud was also demonstrated by the fact that the result computed by the first appellant/respondent showed only the votes of the first applicant and the first appellant/respondent without specifying the votes scored by the other 68 candidates who participated in the election.
“The judgment which is a nullity ought to be set aside because it was given per incuriam, meaning the previous court judgment failed to pay attention to relevant statutory provision or precedents.
“That the judgment is a nullity having been delivered without jurisdiction”.
