by admin

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Imo State chapter, has rejected the May 25th Imo State governorship election tribunal ruling held in Abuja, which dismissed the party’s petition and affirmed the election of Governor Hope Uzodimma of APC.

At a press conference held Saturday at the party secretariat in Owerri, the state chairman of the PDP, Hon. Chidi Dike, pointed out that the ruling did not reflect the facts presented before the tribunal by their legal representatives.

Dike declared that the party and its members were not happy with the judgment and would immediately appeal the ruling at the Appeal Court, where, according to them, the judgment would be corrected for the interest of justice and the people of Imo State.

“We state in unmistakable terms that the population of Imo electorate rejected the candidate of APC and placed their confidence in the PDP following abysmal performance of APC in the state,” Dike said.

He also announced that PDP will not participate in the purported Local Government Areas election announced by the APC government for September, calling on the APC led government to jettison the purported election.

The State Publicity Secretary of the party, Hon. Carl Ugochukwu Nwokoma, affirmed the party’s stand not to take part in the election.

“APC is in a hurry to conduct the election because they know that they are going out.” he said
