Heavy Protest Rocks Owerri As Imo People Reject Supreme Court Judgement
There is heavy protest now in Imo State as the whole state rejects Supreme Court judgment.
Protesters were seen with banners bearing Ihedioha is our governor, we know who we voted for.
The spokes person of the protesters said:
“We are very sad here in Imo State. It’s a shame to our democracy for Supreme Court to remove our democratically elected governor Chief Emeka Ihedioha.
“During the last gubernatorial election, we the entire imolites came out en masse to vote Emeka of PDP. In my polling unit so many party were sharing money and buying votes but we stood our ground to force out all those building political dynasty.
“Ihedioha’s victory was widely accepted and celebrated by all Imolites. After the election the candidates dragged him to tribune he won, they went to appeal court he also won them.
“But just yesterday 14th January Supreme Court controlled by the APC federal government stole that mandate from us. They say Supreme Court is the final and apex court so we can do nothing. But we disagree. We can do something. It’s only a coward that does nothing when injustice is given to him.
“We all know that Buhari is after all these. He wants APC to rule Imo by force by thunder.
“What APC and Buhari is telling us is that voting during an election while Buhari is in power is meaningless. If they don’t take it by rigging they take it by Supreme Court. This is new format indeed but we reject it. It can never happen here in Imo State.
“I believe that power doesn’t not belong to Buhari or to Supreme Court. Power belongs to the people. If we the entire people of Imo State should reject it with all our might and in togetherness we will triumph”
