The Imo Diaspora Coalition for Justice and Democracy, IDCJD, asked the Supreme Court to remove Senator Hope Uzodinma as governor of the state and restore Hon. Emeka Ihedioha.
This was contained in a letter to the judges of the Supreme Court before the decision on the request for review was made on Monday.
In the letter made available to journalists, the group said that Ihedioha’s mandate should be reinstated alongside the integrity of the judiciary.
The group also told the Supreme Court that it was “the last line of defense to preserve the integrity of Nigerian justice, the sanctity of the ballot, nascent democracy and to avoid anarchy in the country.” “.
The letter added, “May God give you the courage to remain the bastion of justice for the common man.”
“Listen to Ndi Imo’s plea for the restoration of the one who shares their values and for whom they voted – Emeka Ihedioha.”
The Supreme Court will hear Monday and issue statements on the request by Emeka Ihedioha and his party, the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.
In the application, they want the court to quash its previous judgment of January 14 which dismissed Ihedioha and declared Uzodinma to be the true governor of the state.
