Did Hope Uzodinma Meet The Constitutional Spread To Be Declared Governor? by garfield1: 3:58pm On Apr 08
At first,I thought the only mistake the supreme court did in imo state was declaring uzodinma governor without taking into consideration the constitutional spread whereby he must have at least 25% of the votes in two third of imo state which is 18 lgas.a careful recalculation of the results shows that uzodinma actually met the required spread.
He won two LGAs which are oru east and oru west but with nwosu disqualified and votes of AA nullified,hope numbers were boosted and he got 25% in orsu,njaba,isu,orlu,nwangele,ideato north, nkwerre,ohaji egbema in addition to oru east and west where he won.that is ten local governments.if we add results of the 388 polling units he Won but are excluded,he got 25% in owerri west and municipal,ikeduru,ngor okpala,obowo,ehime mbano,ihitte uboma and mbaitoli,oguta,onuimo...

In the light of the above,the apex court was totally right in declaring hope uzodinma as governor of imo.

Grade 8 zombies can be very funny most times...

When the Supreme court governor was installed as the executive governor of the state, Buhari Media Cow's here went into wild celebration.

The celebration continued for BMC's here when the Supreme court governor started Oppressing one Iberibé called Rochas.

Now, the Supreme court governor disappointed them yesterday by clearing IPOB of any wrong doing with the security situation on ground which got one of them who is the Op angry and started looking into the constitutional spread.

Are you guys not ashamed of what Nigeria has become. Does human life not matter anymore. You suddenly remember about vote spread because the Igbo man in Hope Uzodimma finally arose. Governorship is just his hustle but he is an authentic Igboman and when the time comes he will dash una the Governorship and fight for his homeland.

Did you watch Umahi's speech the other day. I laugh at you all. Keep looking for spread. You guys installed him so as to help your Jihadists agenda. Where will he play out the script? Imo state? Igbo heartland? You know nothing at all.

Predictably childish in everything. They will reap in full whatever seed they have planted in Igboland. Our land does not condone abomination. Ndi ara

This Imo case is for history.

The most important thing is that he is Governor...as Centus Nweze, JSC said:

"How can the total number of votes cast in an election be higher than the number of registered voters"?

God keeping us alive, 2023 beckons.

Pre-Supreme Court ruling didn't take him out of office, so does it matter?

The Supreme Court ruling took him out and from their own Computation.....The votes cast were more than the number of registered voters.

Like I said, it is just academic for now.....the ship.has sailed.

Stop confusing accredited votes with registered votes.the business of the supreme court is to find out who actually got the highest lawful votes cast.accredited votes and other values are the duty of inec.the supreme court left inec to add the accredited votes from the disputed 388 units which inec refused to do.

Anyway,that is not my business.my business was to prove that uzodinma met the spread

You ended it quickly so you won't give yourself away.

So votes cast must be more than accredited votes?
Maurice Iwu will be proud of that.

Bold it a hundred times, you'll still be the hypocrite here. How come the Supreme Court governor has suddenly become the new bride of IPOB and a valid source to quote for an ongoing investigation when he's not the police or DSS?

A man a lot of you so disdain and would stop at nothing to discredit? You answer lies there. Interest. That's what it is, hypocrite.

The post is about constitution threshold and spread in imo not with electoral statistics.but if I must indulge you a bit,total accredited votes minus 388 cancelled polling units is 823,000.the supreme court restored the cancelled votes in the disputed 388_000 units but forgot or left out details of accredited votes for inec to tally.since inec refused to,let us do it ourselves.total votes from those units were 220,000.we can assume that total votes accredited were 250,000/total votes cast 220,000.
Therefore,the issues you raised in the words of revered justice obande ogbuinya jca is of no moment and goes to no issue.


By the way,tomorrow is the deadline for okigwe senate judgment

The Centus Nweze, JSC comment was an aside.

The spread is not in question considering the disqualification of the AA candidate.....just like Diri's.

Imo judgment was more political than logical.

And Supreme has refused to reverse itself after it re-approached.

So talking about that case is a waste of time I guess.

Again in the words of justice festus ogbuinya,I roundly frown at your chameleonic character of changing narratives like the oscillating pendulum of a wall clock.you claim his statement was an aside.according to the merriem Webster dictionary, it is an utterance not meant to be heard by someone or a discussion that is not related to the main subject.it is more of a digression.
Except you meant it formed his minority judgment,it is a nullity.

Ogbuinya Festus Obande JCA CON is a good Judge too....he has been in Lagos since he left Abuja.

He was the only member of the panel at the Appeal Court that dissented against Yahaya Bello in 2016. He called for a fresh election.

If you look at Odili's pronouncements in this present Judiciary.....Only Onnoghen and Ngwuta betters her tbh. Start getting used to Odili ooo...

She leaves by May next year and her daughter is already in the FCT Judiciary. Her daughter's mother in-law is Chioma Nwosu-Iheme JCA (Presiding Justice, Court of Appeal, Awka). Nwosu-Iheme's husband used to be a Commissioner in Imo State. So relax, it is going round and round...

Get used to them oooo cheesy

You need to understand me.I like objectivity.bello is apc but the kogi election was a sham.he marshalled out laws and precedents to back himself.same thing for oho.his dissenting judgment was so good and clear that immediately I read it,I knew uzodinma will prevail.the apex court simply adopted it holistically...
But nweze's dissent was not based on point of law or any precedent but just on public pressure and morality.

Is it not trite law and objective enough that the number of votes cast shouldn't exceed the number of accredited voters?

Even in the last by-election in Abia......PUs that had more votes than accredited/registered voters were outrightly cancelled.

The bolded or first paragraph has been overflogged.it is like expecting arsenal to win the league.anyway,that didn't form part of his minority judgment..

A careful persusal of the 388 units will show you that less than 20 units had over voting so even if you cancel them,it will not change the final outcome.this was never challenged up till the supreme court,they were busy chasing shadows.don't join them in that chase

At the bolded, he over-empasised on that.

Infact that was the whole body of his dissent.

Uzodinma brought it at the High Court and Appeal Court but lost, then why do you expect the respondent(s) to challenge their own victory.

I am not chasing any shadow....I am only bringing the dissenting judgement of a Justice you don't want to hear because you are not comfortable with it.

The bone of contention is that he made the judgement whether it stood or not......doesn't matter.

Don't make it look like we are trying to review the Imo saga, you spoke ill of Nweze because he didn't make a judgement you love...let it slide.
