The facts before the people of Imo shows that Hope Uzodinma did not win the governorship election of March 9, as declared by the Supreme Court, Christian leaders in the state have declared.
The religious leaders said, on Wednesday, January 22, that they do not believe that Uzodinma won the election. They thus asked the Supreme Court to review the ruling.
Speaking for the leaders, Rt Rev Chidi Oparaojiaku, an Anglican bishop, said the group was shocked that the topmost court went contrary to the evidence on ground.
Bishop Oparaojiaku described the judgement as a bad precedence by the court and the court must immediately work to maintain a positive image and ensure democracy is not put in danger.
