The Newly installed Imo State governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma has to shed more light on how he defeated his predecessor, Honorable Emeka Ihedioha at the supreme court a few weeks ago.
Speaking in a viral video retrieved by SCANNEWS 24, Hope said he took to court issues of omitted results at 388 units across Polling centres in the state which the electoral umpire, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) did not cancel.
Queried why supposed votes could not be included in the submission of results cast, Hope said he did not make any dispute with anyone both the conduct of the election but simply took original copies of results with his party agents to court.
Explaining further, he said the supreme court take a comparison on the submitted result sheets and pass judgement.
He accused some senior Appeal Court Justices in Imo State of supporting PDP, adding that they are all card-carrying members and as a result, his victory was hampered at the Appeal Court which gave Ihedioha Victory.
He, however, advised INEC to remain neutral in dispatching their duties than taking sides in electoral matters, noting that their primary job is to collate result, input it where necessary and declare a winner.
Citing cases that affected him, Hope alleged that most of the columns that were supposed to bear his scores were left blank as a result reducing his chances of winning.
