Nigeria’s governing party, the All Progressives Congress, APC says it has not lost faith in the country’s judiciary system.
In a press statement by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Lanre Issa-Onilu, the party the commended the Supreme Court for upholding the election of its candidate, Senator Hope Uzodinma as the winner of the 2018 Imo state governorship election.
It would be recalled that on Tuesday, the apex court annulled the election of Emeka Ihedioha and asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to immediately issue certificate of return to Senator Uzodinma.
The APC said it will continue to focus on the judicial route to reclaim its mandate.
“Even as we are still wondering why we lost elections we clearly won in Zamfara State at the Supreme Court and how the same court ruled our party out of the electoral race in Rivers State, we have never, as a political party, lost faith in the judiciary.
“We salute Senator Hope Uzodinma, our supporters and members for their temperance displayed in the aftermath of the blatant rigging of the Imo Governorship election. We chose to focus on the judicial route to reclaim the Party’s mandate. We are confident that our other stolen electoral mandates will be restored by the courts” the statement said.
The party also called on all Imo State APC stakeholders to support Senator Uzodinma to ensure the success of the Party’s Next Level agenda and to democratically entrench the APC in the state and entire South East of Nigeria.
