Imo: Nullify Uzodinma’s victory, order fresh polls – Nnamdi Kanu tells Supreme Court
As the Supreme Court today hears the appeal filed by Emeka Ihedioha seeking a review of its ruling on the Imo gubernatorial election, Nnamdi Kanu has urged the apex court to side with the appellant.
Recall that the court on January 14 nullified the election of Ihedioha of the PDP and declared Uzodinma of the APC winner of the gubernatorial election in the state.
The former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives has filed an application for the review of the apex court judgement, which will be decided today.
Speaking on Radio Biafra from London on Sunday, Kanu, the Leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), urged the court to nullify the victory of current Governor, Sen. Hope Uzodinma and order fresh polls.
He said that ordering fresh polls would be respecting the wishes of the good people of Imo State.
“No matter what their plan is, Imo (Supreme Court ) judgment must not stand. We are warning the whole world, I do not know who Emeka Ihedioha is; frankly speaking, I do not care, but what happens in Imo affects everybody. It must not be allowed to stand to avoid disaster and chaos,” the IPOB leader said.
He accused the Federal Government of foisting Uzodinma on the state in a bid to perpetrate a hidden agenda.
“It is very clear why they are not looking for any other place in Biafra land, but Owerri.
“What they wish to occupy Owerri for is spiritual. Those of you who are blind in spirit cannot see that the caliphate needs Owerri very much, they believe they can strangle us.
“Bayelsa is not important to them, what they are looking for is Imo. I do not want people to be led astray by the judgment that was obtained in Bayelsa case,” Kanu said.
