Imo Deputy Governor, Madumere floors Uche, Nwosu in court

Uche Nwosu
The Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha and his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, yesterday Wednesday November 21, lost again in court.

An Imo State High Court upheld the prayers of the Deputy Governor, Prince Eze Madumere, and quashed the gubernatorial primary held on October 6, 2018, by the Okorocha faction of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state.

Justice Kemakolam A. Ojiako Ojiako, who presided over the court, granted all the prayers sought by Prince Madumere, including the prayer that the October 1, 2018, APC primary election was credible, relevant and met the parameters for the exercise.

The Deputy Governor had urged the court to hold that the October 1, 2018, party primary was the only relevant and valid primary electioneering process, through which Senator Hope Uzodinma emerged winner.

The judge upheld that the judgement was based on the subsisting Order of the Court, granted by Abuja High Court, restraining the party from conducting any fresh primary elections until the determination of the matter before it over October 1, 2018 primary election

According to the judge, the defiance of the Agbakabia-led committee was only an effort in futility, if not an affront to the extant laws guiding court processes.
