“It is the height of ignorance because they don’t know what they are saying. There is a reason for the Supreme Court. In the doctrine and principle of democracy, the law expected that there would be grievances and malpractices in the electoral process."

He insisted that he got justice at the Supreme Court just like other candidates had done in the past and questioned why his case was being viewed differently.

The governor said:

“Human beings voted and the votes were not counted. I went to the Supreme Court and INEC was unable to explain why they did not enter the result. It was a simple judgment. The Supreme Court said INEC was wrong.”

Meanwhile, the Imo state government has dismissed a report claiming that Governor Hope Uzodinma rejected the outcome of the Edo state governorship election.
