IMO ELECTION: The governorship candidate of the Action Alliance in Imo state and son in-law of incumbent governor, Rochas Okorocha, Uche Nwosu, has rejected the results of the Imo Governorship elections and has vowed to challenge it in court.
Speaking to Channels TV this morning, Nwosu who lost the election to PDP’s Emeka Ihedioha, said he will be heading to court to recover his stolen mandate.
”I will take my mandate back. The law is clear on the requirements for declaring somebody as a winner in an election. The law required that to be declared a winner, you have the mandatory spread of 25 per cent win in at least two-thirds majority. In this case, two-thirds of the 27 local government areas of the state is 18 and Ihedioha has 25 per cent spread in only 12 local government areas whereas I have in 15. So it’s clear that INEC has compromised.
It is the federal constitution. It is not an Uche Nwosu constitution neither is it an Action Alliance Constitution. It is very clear in the constitution in article 179 that you cannot be declared winner unless you meet up the criteria. You (Ihedioha) have not met the criteria and you are being declared winner? Under whose authority? We believe in Nigerian judiciary that justice will take place but what I have to state is that the mandate of Action Alliance in Imo has been robbed” he said
