The Supreme Court of Nigeria today has declared Senator Hope Uzodinma as the validly elected governor of IMO state in the March 9 Governorship election held last year.

The judgement which was delivered by Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun in an appeal filed by Senator Ifeanyi Ararume was dismissed on the ground that the appellant did not prove the allegation.

Declared that votes due to Hope Uzodima that were wrongly excluded, shall be added to the result. Therefore Governor Emeka Ihedioha is not validly elected. 

The Court ruled that Hope Uzodinma is the duly elected governor and certificate of return be issued to him immediately by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).


What do you have to say? Is the judgement fair or bias?
