The Imo state governor visited with Oshiomhole, the national chairman of the APC.
Uzodinma was declared the rightful winner of the 2019 governorship election in Imo state by the Supreme Court in a unanimous judgement.
The ruling was however unpopular with several people, including the opposition party, the PDP, which felt the apex court was misled by facts presented by the APC candidate in the election Uzodinma.
Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has taken the protest against the judgement to the international community through a peaceful protest to the embassy of the United States of America and the Consulate of the United Kingdom in Abuja.
The party is protesting the federal government’s alleged disregard for the rule of law. The party's national chairman, Uche Secondus, Enyinnaya Abaribe, who is the Senate minority leader, and others were part of the protest.
