Apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has joined others in congratulating the newly announced governor of Imo State while hailing the court judgement.
In the congratulatory message sent to the Governor Hope Uzodinma on Wednesday, they described the Supreme Court's verdict that named him (Uzodinma) the winner of the March 9, 2019 election, as well considered.
The Secretary-General of the apex body of Ndigbo, Uche Okwukwu, who made this remark said, “Ohanaeze Ndigbo heartily congratulates Senator Hope Uzodinma on his victory at the Supreme Court of Nigeria.”
He noted that the APC has enlarged its political space in Igboland with Uzodinma’s victory.
The body which expressed happiness over the victory said that a greater number of states in Igboland would be won by the All Progressives Congress (APC) before the 2023 general election.
The Secretary-General said, “The judgment is a well-considered and sound one."
He reiterated that the Ndigbo are happy that Uzodinma’s mandate freely given by Imo people had been restored by God.
