President Muhammadu Buhari has commended the Supreme Court for the `courage and perseverance’ to return Sen. Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) winner of the March 9, 2019 governorship election in Imo.
The president made the commendation while reacting to Tuesday’s Supreme Court judgment that sacked Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as Governor of Imo State and declared Uzodinma winner.
President Buhari said: “The road to justice may be long and tortuous, but it is the best path for anyone aggrieved.
“Under the new administration, a new journey to build a new Imo with new energy is about to begin. In this outcome, it is the people of Imo State who have emerged victorious.”
In congratulating the new governor, the president urged Uzodinma to promote the ideals of the APC and unite the state by running an inclusive administration.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Supreme Court in a unanimous judgment on Tuesday sacked Ihedioha as Governor of Imo State, and declared Hope Uzodinma winner.
A seven-man panel of the apex court in its decision held that Ihedioha did not win the majority of votes cast at the March 9, 2019 governorship election.
In the Judgment delivered by Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun, the court accordingly ordered the INEC to withdraw the Certificate of Return issued to Ihedioha and issue a fresh Certificate of Return to the candidate of the APC on grounds that he won the majority of the lawful votes cast at the election.
The court also ordered the immediate swearing-in of Uzodinma as the lawful winner of the March 9, 2019 governorship election in Imo State.

Ihedioha: Fr Mbaka Releases Another Dangerous Prophecy
Catholic priest and spiritual director of Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has released a dangerous prophecy on those criticizing him for predicting the removal of Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha as Governor of Imo State.
The fiery priest prophesied that God’s judgment will come on the people who are accusing him of releasing fake prophecies.
Mbaka’s prophecy was released on Facebook, via the AMEN’s page.
AMEN, on a post on its Facebook page maintained that Mbaka’s prophecies were from God.
“I bless the name of the Most High God because He said it and it came to pass.
“My prophecy is not borrowed or from any evil altar but from God Almighty, the creator of heaven and earth,” he said.
Mbaka further added: “Some accused me of being a politician but only God knows who I am. Let God of Adoration speak for me. You who speak evil against me, hmmm… God of Adoration is a consuming fire. I declare judgment upon those who curse me for nothing. My hands are clean.
”I bless those who know the truth and stand for it. Let God of Elijah fight for me. Let the heaven speak and let the children of God receive their all-round blessings, in Jesus mighty name!
“The Lord is taking you to a level even your enemy cannot reach. This will be your year of abundance. Everything you ask in your prayer will be in abundance, in Jesus mighty name,” Father Mbaka declared.
Fani-Kayode Blasts Anthony Joshua For Prostrating Before Buhari
Former Minister of Aviation and chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Femi Fani-Kayode has lambasted Anthony Joshua for prostrating before President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a video and picture that surfaced online, the 30-year-old Nigerian British boxer was seen prostrating before the President on Saturday in the United Kingdom, as he presented his heavyweight belts.
Joshua’s action attracted praises from the president’s aides and his family members who attended the meeting.
However, Fani-Kayode and his loyalists seem to be unhappy with Joshua as they declare their hatred for his act of respect to the president.
Reacting to Joshua’s action on Sunday, Fani-Kayode described it as “utterly repulsive and disgusting.”
He tweeted: “I find this picture @anthonyfjoshua’s behaviour utterly repulsive and disgusting. Prostrating before his slave master & a bloodthirsty dictator & tyrant who is viciously persecuting and humiliating his people: what a crying shame. This speaks volumes. He has lost me!.”
