Governor of Imo state Hope Uzodimma, has now petitioned the National Judicial Council (NJC) and Abubakar Malami, the Attorney-General of the Federation, over the tag “supreme court governor” used to describe him by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and a measurable number of Nigerians.
Recall that In January, the former governor of the state Emeka Ihedioha was sacked as Imo state governor following a decision by the Supreme court ruling that Hope Uzodinma was the duly elected governor of the state on the basis that results from 388 polling units were excluded when the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced the final tally in March 2019.
The petition which was also addressed to the National Assembly urged the main opposition party PDP to desist from tagging Hope Uzodinma, “Supreme Court Governor”
Batos Chikezie, special adviser to Uzodinma on political matters, asked that Ogubundu Nwadike, the publicity secretary for PDP in the state, and other loyalists be stopped from using the “supreme court governor” tag which he said was derogatory and misleading.
