Written by thereachfm on March 21, 2019
Forty-seven political parties in Imo State say they will challenge the victory of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate, Emeka Ihedioha during the governorship election in the state.
Some of the chairmen and governorship candidates of the parties disclosed this to newsmen yesterday in Owerri, where they contended that Ihedioha’s declaration as governor-elect was not in tandem with the provisions of the Constitution.
The group , which said they will seek redress in court claimed that Ihedioha did not meet the constitutional requirement of making 25 per cent votes in two-thirds of the entire state.
Reports say the former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, had polled 273,404 votes to defeat Uche Nwosu of the Action Alliance (AA) and Senator Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the governorship held on the 9th of March.
