If any party doesn't agree with the figures, they are at liberty to head to court. Which was what APC did

Well, now it seems Imo state PDP just did what they did in 2015 presidential election but Hope Uzodinma didn't slack.

Well, I hope Ihedioha can rebuild all Okorocha's statues that he demolished before he vacates that seat.

Hope Uzodinma's case was that the 388 polling units spread across the state which he won was wrongfully excluded during collation by INEC.

The Supreme Court merely gave him back the units which skyrocketed his score over Ihedioha and fulfilled the geographical spread.

It’s that simple

Uche Nwosu withdrew, so after adding Sen hope's "stolen mandate", the total number moved from 96,458 to 400,000. Therefore overtaking both Ihedioha and Ifeanyi combine.

Nigeria �� is in trouble.

Why did INEC exclude those polling units and was there no rerun in those PUs especially seeing that the total number of votes there seem to exceed Ihedioha's margin of victory?

One morning,
Citizen Hope Uzodinma woke up,
by nightfall he was the Governor of a State.

Same morning, Governor Emeka Ihedioha woke up, hearing 'Good Morning Your Excellency' before he even took his morning bath, by nightfall, he was a regular citizen.

God, we hail thee!...........Dee! wink



Give it up to this GREAT MAN OF GOD Biko!

Where did these HUGE 236,600 votes come from? Which units did it come from? Didnt other candidates score votes from those units? Who "excluded" it from Uzodinma? Was it INEC, a body controlled by the FG?

Thought you were smarter than this, Bros??

If these units were actually excluded i.e 388 units(how many units are there in Imo again?), didnt other candidates win a single vote from these excluded units?

Then, who excluded them?

Then, where are these units located in Imo?

If the SC wasnt irresponsible in this case knowing the huge shock in declaring a person who came out as 4th as the winner, it ought to have released the written opinion so every one is guided and nobody is guessing.

This decision is so consequential for Gods sake for us to be guessing

This guy is dumb. The court simply agreed that the results from 388 PU's where Hope Uzodinma won but we're not added to the tally (unlawfully). should have been added.
When the results from these 388 PU's were added, he had the majority of lawful votes cast and has also fulfilled all the other constitutional requirements. Therefore he is the winner.

Hope Uzodinma's petition was predicated on the fact that INEC unlawfully cancelled results in most polling units where he scored majority votes. He contended that INEC lacks the power to nullify the election of a polling unit after the Presiding Officer had declared the result in that polling unit.

He further argued that if you calculate the votes in the polling units unlawfully cancelled by INEC and add it to the existing ones, he scored the highest number of valid votes cast and he ought to have been declared the winner of the election.

Hope Uzodinma through his counsel tendered those results sheets where he won and INEC did not deny that those results were written by their agents (the Presiding Officers).

There were no contradictory results tendered by the Respondents in respect of the polling units where Uzodinma claimed he won.

The law is already settled that once results have been declared by a presiding officer, the INEC has no power to nullify or cancel the result.

Only a competent election petition tribunal has such power.

Secondly, the Apex Court could not have ordered for a rerun or run off because Hope Uzodinma met the constitutional requirement of securing 25% votes in 2/3 of the Local Governments in the State and he won the highest number of valid votes cast in the election.

In any event, the petitioner/appellant Hope Uzodinma did not seek such a relief from the tribunal.

Thirdly, the argument on the effect of the Uche Nwosu's judgment was not canvassed at the Supreme Court in the Uzodinma's case.

The Supreme Court has no power to delve into issues not canvassed or presented before it.

There was no cross appeal or issue canvassed at the apex court on whether Hope Uzodinma was a candidate of the APC in the IMO Governorship election or whether his appeal has become incompetent in view of the recent decision of the apex court regarding the dual candidacy of Uche Nwosu.

In any event, Hope Uzodinma was not a party to that other case nullifying the candidacy of Uche Nwosu.

The decision of the apex court is not meant to massage the sentiments of a few persons.

The Court of law decides a case based on the issues formulated before it and marrying the evidence led at the trial to the law.

That to me, is what the Supreme Court just did. We however await the full judgment of the Court so we can make better meaning out of it. We only have to respect it. Of course intellectual critiques are welcomed.
