The distinguished Senator Hope Uzodinma will today be sworn in as the new Executive Governor of Imo State. This development follows the directive of the Supreme Court Judgement delivered in Abuja on Tuesday, January 14th.
After many months of a long drawn legal battle among the leading governorship contenders in the 2019 governorship polls, a seven-man panel led by Chief Justice Tanko Muhammad unanimously declared Senator Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressive Congress (APC) as the winner of the election. The Governor elect will be sworn in alongside his Deputy, Professor Placid Njoku. In line with established protocol, the ceremony will be presided over by the Chief Judge of Imo State.
