Ihedioha Suffered the greatest political robbery in Nigeria’s history, Sir Eke

Sir Henry Otulle Eke

Sir Henry Eke, a United States of America based Imo born professional, and a Civil Rights Advocate in the Great State of Texas, have bared his mind over the controversial January 14th 2020, ruling of the Nigerian Supreme Court, which removed Rt Hon Emeka Ihedioha, who had been announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC, as the authentic winner of the 2019 Governorship election in Imo State, and installed Senator Hope Uzodinma in his stead.

The widely criticized ruling, have in recent times faced more public criticism, following the Supreme Court’s seeming reluctance, to hear the suit brought before it over the matter, by Chief Philip Umeadi SAN.

Umeadi is seeking the Supreme Court’s interpretation, of an earlier ruling, it handed down on Ugwumba Uche Nwosu, which states that Uche Nwosu, not Hope Uzodinma, was the authentic candidate of the All Progressives Congress APC, in the election.

Sir Eke was reacting to an article by Maazi Obinna Akuwudike, captioned “Ihedioha On A Date with Destiny despite denials” published on Efizzy, as well as Opera News, and had the following to say:

This man, Governor Emeka Ihedioha, suffered the greatest political robbery, kidnapping and banditry combined in the Nigerian political scene. The equation to his political murder was that of the amagalmation of Northern and Southern Protectorate in 1914 by Luggard and his girlfriend, Flora Shaw.

Imo State State citizens should have been on the streets with civil disobedience until the political carnage was reversed.

The Supreme Court abused and bastardized the rule of law and the made the iconic institution that were once sat by legends like Chief Justices Coker, Adetokumbo Ademola and Chukwudifu Oputa inconsequential and a trash bin.
