Uzodinma petitions NJC, AGF over ‘Supreme Court governor’ tag by PDP

Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State.

Imo State governor, Hope Uzodimma has petitioned the National Judicial Council (NJC) and Abubakar Malami, Attorney-General of the Federation over the tag “supreme court governor” used to describe him by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

In January, Emeka Ihedioha was sacked as Imo State governor following the apex court ruling that Uzodinma was the duly elected governor of the state on the grounds that results from 388 polling units were excluded when the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced the final tally in March 2019.

In the petition, also addressed to the leadership of the National Assembly, Batos Chikezie, Special Adviser to Uzodinma on Political Matters asked that Ogubundu Nwadike, the publicity secretary for PDP in the state and other loyalists be stopped from using the “supreme court governor” tag as it is derogatory.

Chikezie said since the supreme court’s decision on January 14, 2020, “Nwadike continued to refer to Uzodinma as the supreme court governor and Chief Emeka Ihedioha as the elected governor of the state in the print, electronic and social media.”

He described the tag as “wicked propaganda and blackmail characteristically designed to incite and delude the people of the state thereby misdirecting them to disregard the judiciary.”

He also asked that the NJC through the registrar of the supreme court ensure that Nwadike is made to stand trial for “persistently making a mockery of the decision and proceeding of the supreme court on the Imo state gubernatorial election, thereby making them look compromised and biased in the eyes of the public which is a dent on their integrity and pedigree.”
