Earlier, Legit.ng reported that apparently dissatisfied with the way Supreme Court sacked Emeka Ihedioha as the governor of Imo state, the PDP had called for immediate review and reversal of the decision of the apex court.

The party made this known on Thursday, January 16, at a press conference at its secretariat in Abuja.

Legit.ng gathered that while addressing journalists, the party’s national chairman, Uche Secondus, said the reversal would be in the interest of justice. The Supreme Court had on Tuesday, January 14, nullified the election of Ihedioha as the governor of the state.
