Sacked former governor of Imo State Emeka Ihedioha has addressed issues as it relates to the supreme court judgement and those celebrating his loss.
He expressed shock over the judgement and still in shock over the termination of his tenue as governor of Imo State by the apex court.
The supreme court on January 14 declared Senator Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as Governor of Imo state, a verdict that halted the tenure of Emeka Ihedioha.
In a meeting with the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) held at his Abuja residence on Saturday January 18, Ihedioha stated that he pities those celebrating the sad event as they are not good students of democracy.
“The elections in Imo were closely monitored, well advertised and everybody in Nigeria followed it through. The results were very clear, the electoral umpire still has the results.
“It is not about Emeka Ihedioha. It is not about Imo State. It is about the future of our country and democracy. It’s about what do we do tomorrow. .. I am calm and we are calm, and that is why you see in Imo, there is calmness.
“The calmness is coming out of shock, it is coming of disbelief. It is coming out of the fact that people are saying, let us still see, can this be possible? We are waiting for answers and I believe there will be answers.
“This is not the time to celebrate. I pity anyone who is celebrating that sad event. If anyone is celebrating, that person is not a student of democracy.”
