The Supreme Court on Tuesday delivered a landmark judgement which nullified the election of Emeka Ihedioha as the governor of Imo State.

A seven-man panel of the apex court which was led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Tanko Muhammad, unanimously declared Hope Uzodinma of APC as the winner of the March 9, 2019, governorship election and the validly elected governor of Imo state.

Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun, who read the lead judgment of the panel, ordered that the certificate of return that was issued to current Imo Governor, Emeka Ihedioha be withdrawn immediately.

She also directed that a fresh certificate of return should be issued to Sen. Hope Uzodinma Uzodinma of the ruling APC.

She directed that Uzodinma must be immediately sworn in as the Governor of Imo State.

We are still awaiting further details as regards this judgement as the man declared the winner by the supreme court was the fourth candidate on the official INEC result in the 2019 governorship election in the state.

It will be recalled that Ihedioha had worn at both the election petition tribunal and the appeal court but little did he know that the supreme court had other plans for him.

It is fingers crossed as we await full details of the judgement which will put us all in the know as to why the election of Ihedioha was nullified as well as the choice of the final winner.
