The Peoples Democratic Party, on Saturday, called on the Justice Tanko Muhammed-led Supreme Court to reconsider its judgement in the Imo Governorship ruling as the final electoral figures allegedly do not add up.

During a solidarity visit by the PDP National Working Committee to Ihedioha, National Chairman of the Party, Uche Secondus, accepted that the judgement of the apex court was final, but prayed the court to reconsider the pronounced results.

The Supreme Court had in a ruling, sacked PDP’s Emeka Ihedioha as governor of Imo State, declaring All Progressives Congress’ Hope Uzodinma as governor.

Secondus said, “We know that the Supreme Court is the end. What we seek in the case of Imo State is for the Supreme Court to reverse (the judgement). We are saying that figures are not adding up, can they look at it again? We are a nation governed by laws.

“In the case of Imo State, we have more questions than answers because we cannot see the figures adding up. There are many questions agitating our minds and the minds of Nigerians. I want to appeal to our brothers on the other side to stop trivialising issues.”

Ihedioha expressed shock at the result, saying it was not only about Imo State, but it would affect Nigeria’s electoral process.

He said, “We are as shocked as yourselves. That event will define our electoral system. It is at the foundation of our electoral processes. It is not about Imo State but about our electoral processes. We are calm, calmness out of shock.”
