Ohanaeze Ndigbo Congratulates Hope Uzodinma For Becoming Imo Gov

The Imo State chapter of the apex socio-cultural organization of the Igbo nation worldwide, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has congratulated Senator Hope Uzodinma on his victory at the Supreme Court, leading to his becoming the State governornd.
At a press conference in Owerri today, February 7 the President, Ambassador Ezechi Chukwu, said that Ohaneze is a non-partisan organization that supports all governments in power and makes critical input, so far as the government in question is a product of the democratic institution in synchronization with the authority of the laws of the land.
He said that Senator Hope Uzodinma duly contested the election in accordance with the electoral act, adding that Uzodinma’s post-election recourse to the judiciary for redress is constitutional and in consonance with the extant laws of the land.
“In view of the aforesaid, Imo State chapter of Ohanaeze Ndigbo consequently upholds strongly at 360 degrees the election of Senator Hope Uzodinma as pronounced by the highest court of the land on the 14th of January, 2020. Our support for Governor Uzodinma is both morally and formally justifiable because the judiciary which upheld his mandate is the heartbeat of our democratic institution and the temporal last hope of the common man.”
Chukwu said that since Ohanaeze Ndigbo in Imo State is not in possession of any indisputable fact to counter Senator Uzodinma’s evidence as upheld by the Supreme Court, they have no option than to say congratulations to Governor Uzodinma for his resounding victory.
He called for prayers and support for Governor Uzodinma.
“We enjoin our people to give Senator Hope Uzodinma all the necessary support he needs to succeed because we know above all, that he possesses the experience and capacity. We equally encourage constructive criticism of his government when the need arises because critique is an essential ingredient of democracy.”
Chukwu condemned in strong terms, any form of ill-conceived protest premised on aggression, violence or extra-judicial metrics and mechanisms and warned that Ohanaeze Ndigbo Imo State will not remain impassive in the face of such aberration by any group of people.
