EMEKA IHEDIOHA’S PURPORTED VICTORY IS STOLEN
The attention of His Excellency Ugwumba Uche Nwosu has been drawn to a forged congratulatory message making the rounds on social media, purporting that the Action Alliance candidate has conceded defeat and congratulated Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha.
The reality is that His Excellency Ugwumba Uche Nwosu won the governorship election and couldn’t have thought of congratulating anyone other than himself. Congratulating a subverter of the people’s will be tantamount to betraying the people of Imo State, who freely gave him their mandate, overwhelmingly, across the 27 LGAs of the State.
We have formally communicated the Independent National Electoral Commission on our disapproval of the results declared and we expect that INEC as a law abiding institution will not lend itself to be used to perpetrate illegality in the State by declaring anyone other than His Excellency Ugwumba Uche Nwosu as the governor-elect of Imo State.
While assuring our teeming supporters that our stolen mandate shall be recovered, we urge them to remain calm, law-abiding and peaceful while we study the situation and come up with a more comprehensive statement.
