The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Imo state has stated that her legal case against the APC’s governorship candidate, Senator Hope Uzodinma, is still being heard in court.
Uzodinma’s election through the Supreme Court, according to the party, was fraudulent.
“our party issues this clarification, following speculations by party leaders, stakeholders, members, supporters, and indeed a huge number of Imo people and Nigerians at large about the suit filed by Barr. Mcfyne C. Chikwendu, who claimed to be a concerned citizen,” it said in a statement signed by the party’s state Publicity Secretary, Ogubundu Nwadike.
“The complaint asks that Senator Uzodinma be removed as governor of Imo State by an Abuja court. The suit was dismissed by an Abuja court, which turned down the applicant’s requests.
“Our party, on the other hand, reiterates that, while the case was dismissed by an Abuja court, the case involving the PDP is still pending before the Supreme Court. It is a suit filed by Chief Philip Umeadi, SAN, with the support of the PDP, requesting the Supreme Court to enforce its ruling on the APC’s candidate in the 2019 governorship election, in which Chief Uche Nwosu was recognized and dismissed by the Supreme Court as the party’s authentic candidate.

“Our party believes in the Supreme Court, which has demonstrated that its verdicts are final and irreversible. We are therefore hopeful that, once the case is called for hearing, the Supreme Court’s irreversible ruling on the APC’s legitimate candidate in the 2019 Imo governorship election would be upheld.”
Meanwhile, the opposition party has urged the public to remain determined and hopeful, claiming that the PDP was not involved in the vacated seat, which Senator Uzodinma and his aides allegedly used as a tool of blackmail.
The news was also misinterpreted and misconstrued, according to the party’s spokeswoman, who assured that the governor’s case is still being heard in court.
