Ihedioha Says Those Celebrating Supreme Court Verdict On Imo Are Not Students Of Democracy

Emeka Ihedioha

“This is not the time to celebrate. I pity anyone who is celebrating that sad event. If anyone is celebrating, that person is not a student of democracy.”

These were the words of the immediate past Governor of Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha when he received in audience today, January 18, members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) who paid him a solidarity visit in Abuja.
Ihedioha, who said that both the judiciary and the electoral system are on trial, described the judgment as shocking both to himself and several others across the country, as it was never anticipated.
He said that his ouster as governor of Imo State by the apex court remains a mystery, adding: “the elections in Imo were closely monitored, well advertised and everybody in Nigeria followed it through. The results were very clear, the electoral umpire still has the results…
“it is not about Emeka Ihedioha. It is not about Imo State. It is about the future of our country and democracy. It’s about what do we do tomorrow. ..
“I am calm and we are calm, and that is why you see in Imo, there is calmness. The calmness is coming out of shock, it is coming out of disbelief. It is coming out of the fact that people are saying, let us still see, can this be possible?
“We are waiting for answers and I believe there will be answers.”
