Uzodinma vs Ihedioha: CSO alleges use of same panel by Supreme Court to review judgment

ABUJA- A Civil Society Organisation, CSO, Concerned Nigerians Group, CNG, Sunday, alleged that the Supreme Court is making moves to use same panel that gave the judgment on the Imo State governorship election in favour of the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator Hope Uzodinma, to review the same judgment on Tuesday.
This alleged move by the apex court was contained in a statement signed by the Convener, CNG, Comrade Deji Adeyanju, who also called for wholistic review of the judgment.
According to Adeyanju, CNG berates the apex court for putting itself in a position where citizens would now have to question its judgment, making the revered institution to been seen by Nigerians as fallible.
It would be recalled that Supreme Court had sacked Nigerian main opposition candidate, the PDP in the 2019 general election in Imo State, Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, which the ruling APC’s candidate, Senator Hope Uzodinma.
The statement reads in part, “We have been reliably informed that the Supreme Court is going to use the same panel that was used to carry out the injustice in the first place to review the judgment.
“They’ve decided to fix both Zamfara and Imo review on Tuesday so they can strike a political balance, and no amount of political correctness and expediency can solve the injustice done in Imo where the Supreme Court awarded votes that do not exist to the APC.
“How can the apex court explain how it awarded votes to Hope Uzodinma of APC beyond number of registered voters and accredited voters in the election?”
“The Supreme Court relied on the supposed fake result sheets that had only APC and PDP on the results sheets when 70 political parties contested the election.”
“The attempt of the apex court to redeem its image by gifting the opposition, Bayelsa State will still not correct the injustice done in Imo. The irreducible minimum the Supreme Court can do in ensuring that justice is done in Imo is to ensure that the mistake done by the judges be corrected especially as regards the numbers that are not adding up.”
