JUST IN: Tribunal Affirms Uzodinma As Imo Gov

The Imo State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Abuja, on Friday, has affirmed Hope Uzodinma as the Governor of Imo State.

In a unanimous judgment delivered by Justice Oluyemi Akintan-Osadebay’s three-man panel, the tribunal held that Uzodimma’s election as the state governor complied with the provisions of the Electoral Act.

The tribunal, thereby dismissed the petition filed by the Labour Party and its governorship candidate, Athan Achonu.

In 2022, the Independent National Electoral Commission declared Uzodimma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the governor, having secured 540,308 votes to emerge as the winner.

Senator Samuel Anyanwu of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had 71,503 votes while Achonu came third with 64,081 votes.

Dissatisfied with the result, Achonu had approached the court to sack the governor, alleging electoral malpractices in some parts of the state.
