Imo Supreme Court Ruling: We Already Knew The Outcome – Oshiomhole


Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress APC,  has said that the Tuesday Imo judgement view between Hope Uzodinma of the APC and Emeka Ihedioha was predictable.

After a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday evening at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, Oshiomhole said the earlier action of the court in the Bayelsa State similar review had provided an indication to what should be expected in the Imo matter.

According to the him the review was just consistent with the Supreme Court’s body language in similar matters that had come up in recent times.

The former governor lampooned the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for dare thinking it could get anything different from the decision of the Supreme Court.

His words: “I think it’s refreshing and quite predictable in the sense that from the attitude of the Supreme Court last week on Bayelsa that nothing was wrong with the candidate, the lower court did not disqualify the candidate, the issue of the candidate was not before the Supreme Court and yet the Supreme Court made a decision which we thought that benefited from in the words of Mr Olanikpekun, some human corrections and the court says no whatever they have done was final.

“If that is the tradition of the court unless they want to be changing it every other day I do nothing what has happened today was strange.

“We know that Ihedioha did not have the required number and that is a fact that nobody has ever disputed. How anybody thought he can impose someone who did not meet the spread is only known to PDP because they specialize in rigging and they see rigging as their birthright.

And that is why they could have the guts to be protesting in front of foreign embassies as if Nigeria is a colony under the supervision of some foreign powers.

“So I think what the Supreme Court has done today is just to reaffirm that they are supreme and whatever they did the last time was on the basis of what was before them. They did not make mistakes, there are no gaps, no ambiguity and therefore there was no basis to reproach them to sit on the appeal in their own judgement.

“I think they are just being consistent with the position they took in previous cases. Of course, as a party chairman, APC members and indeed all democrats and all those who believe in the rule of law, who believe that as imperfect as the Supreme Court can be, they remain Supreme.

“We are happy and we thank God that the whole litigation process has come to an end. Because like Justice Amina Augie said in that judgement that there has to be an end to litigation, and I cannot agree less so that the people of Imo state can relax, sit back and work with their governor and that all hands are on deck to fill up the gaps so that Imo people will witness sustainable growth and development”, he said.
