Ihedioha Has No Plans To Withdraw Case From Supreme Court —Udokwu
Dr Vin Udokwu, an ally of Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, has debunked the report that Ihedioha has concluded plans to to withdraw the matter at the Supreme Court coming up on Monday, 2nd of March 2020.
The Supreme Court had declared Senator Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress [APC] as the winner of the election despite finishing fourth on the table of the Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC].
The court also ordered Hon. Ihedioha to vacate the Douglas House and that INEC issued Certificate of Return to Senator Uzodinma.
In a statement issued on Thursday, Dr. Udokwu described the report as mere wishful thinking, “cheap propaganda and the mother of all lies”.
He said: “My attention has been drawn to the online news making the round that I addressed the teaming supporters of H.E. Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, who gathered at the Kalu Nwankwo Sports Centre today for a prayer session, informing them of the intention and indeed the decision of H.E Ihedioha to withdraw the matter at the Supreme court coming up on Monday 2nd of March 2020.
“I hereby state once again that this is cheap propaganda and the mother of all lies.
“The gathering was purely for prayers and I did not address the people let alone telling them that H.E. Rt Hon Ihedioha is planning to withdraw the matter in court.”
Udokwu warned Ihedioha’s detractors to desist from further action detrimental to the interest of Imo residents .
He said: “I hereby advise the writer to desist from this type of mischief which is capable of putting him into trouble.
“This fabrication and falsehood goes to confirm my earlier statement that the APC are already jittery expressing apprehension and fear of losing at the supreme court on 2nd of March 2020, otherwise why all these pressures on Ihedioha to withdraw the case.
“All our supporters should continue on our already scheduled prayers and fasting sessions . God will definitely give us justice.”
Presently, there is palpable tension at both camps of Ihedioha and Uzodinma as the Supreme Court is set to revisit the matter on March 2.
