Governor Hope Uzodinma calls those who refers to him as Supreme Court Governor, ignorant



In an interview on Channels Television, Imo state Governor, Hope Uzodinma, described those who called him Supreme Court Governor, ignorant. He pointed out that he is not the first to be favoured by Supreme Court Justice. He said:

“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,” 

“When this happens, the only legitimate right you have is to seek redress at the court. And of course, the court determines. Remember that this is not the first time, so many elections had held where the candidates went to court and they got justice. So, why will mine be different?

“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.”

He also talked about the effect of coronavirus in his state:

“By January, we were trying to build up our Internally Generated Revenue which was on the increase. By February it was on the increase but the thing nosedived in March…As I speak to you, 95 per cent of the companies operating in Imo State have not filed their annual returns”.
