Court Affirms Hope Uzodinma As Imo APC Governorship Candidate by Obaiyski(m): 1:57pm On Oct 11
AN Abuja High Court on Wednesday recognized Senator Hope Uzodinma as the candidate of the party for the 2019 Imo governorship election.

The court, which was presided over by Justice O.A Musa said that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) must also recognize only Uzodinma as the governorship candidate in the 2019 election.

Justice O. A. Musa who gave the restraining order on Tuesday, also restrained INEC (2nd Respondent) in the case from processing or publishing the “name of any other person other than Senator Hope Uzodimma from the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the gubernatorial candidate for Imo State Governorship election for 2019” pending the determination of the substantive suit on the matter.

Uzodimma through his lawyer, Joe Agi (SAN) had approached the court seeking an order to restrain the All Progressives Congress (APC) from conducting a fresh or re-conducting another primary for the Imo State Gubernatorial primaries and INEC from monitoring or purporting to monitor any fresh primaries or re-conducted primaries by the APC in Imo State Gubernatorial Election pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice before the Court.

Other reliefs sought by Senator Hope Uzodimma include:

An order directing the APC to forward his name (Uzodimma) to INEC as the Gubernatorial Candidate for Imo State Governorship Election for 2019.

An order restraining INEC from continuing to process or publish any other person’s name except the name Senator Hope Uzodimma; and an order for accelerated hearing on the matter.

In his affidavit in support of the motion exparte, the claimant (Uzodimma) averred that he was declared the winner of the Imo State APC gubernatorial primaries which were conducted on October 1, 2018, but shortly after he was declared the winner, “the National Chairman of the APC issued a press statement on the 3rd October 2018 purporting to cancel the primaries and re-conducting a fresh one.”

He added that none of the contestants in the election protested the result as declared by the returning officer “but rather six out of the nine contestants (Aspirants) confirmed that the primaries held and were free and fair.”

The Plaintiff noted in its affidavit that noted that the electoral guidelines do not give the National Chairman of the APC or the National Working Committee (NWC) to interfere with the electoral process; and that “out of the nine contestants (Aspirants) six agreed that there was an election and I (Uzodimma) won.”

He further averred that in the absence of an appeal, no organ of the party can cancel the result of primaries. He said failure of the Court to grant the order, “irreparable damage will be done to me.”

The Court has fixed October 16, 2018, for definite hearing of the matter.

It would be recalled that five of the governorship aspirants declared support for Senator Hope Uzodinma as winner of the Imo State governorship primaries conducted on Oct. 1 by the Ahmed Gulak Election Committee.

Rochas Okoroawusa, please kindly relocate to Lagos and practice "Me & My Dynasty" politics, it cant work in Imo state.
Imo state is too educated, enlightened, politically matured and responsive for such nonsense.
It's funny the battle is still within your party, Ndi Imo are waiting for the general elections to teach you the bitter lesson of your life.

Exercise in futility!

If Hope Uzodinma is popular as he claims, why did he defect from the PDP to APC after Okorocha singlehandedly built APC from the scratch?


Why can't he try other parties in Imo State and ask for votes?

Rochas and Amethief how far? These two guys will automatically boycott APC in next years elections. The party is really in a sorry state. Just like these two, the chief dullard won't have a choice but to campaign for the opposition.

I am not a Rochas fan but Uzo will end up wasting his money and time.
He should have formed his own party instead of fighting tooth and nail for Okorocha's party.
At the end of the day, the case will be on whether a party can cancel its primary election.
I know what the court is likely to rule.
