by admin

The Imo State governorship election petition tribunal, sitting in Owerri, has admitted results of 366 polling units said to have been removed from the final governorship results which led to the declaration of Hon.Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP , winner of the election in the State

Rabi Huseini, Deputy Commissioner of Police, in charge of Operations in the State during the elections tendered the evidence before the tribunal.

Supporters of the APC governorship candidate, Senator Hope Uzodinma had claimed that the form EC8A tallied with the same 388 polling units results admitted by the tribunal as evidence which were presented by Senator Hope Uzodinma.

A long argument later ensued which lasted for more than four hours between the counsel to Senator Uzodinma, Olusola Oke (SAN) and that of PDP and INEC, the first and second respondents, who objected to the evidence.

Reports say the Police witness was ordered by the Tribunal to go ahead and testify on his evidence before the tribunal.

The APC governorship candidate, Senator Hope Uzodinma had after the March 9, 2019 governorship election opposed the results which declared Hon.Emeka Ihedioha winner of the polls.
