Dr Vin Udokwu, an ally of Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, has debunked the report that Ihedioha has concluded plans to to withdraw the matter at the Supreme Court coming up on Monday, 2nd of March 2020.
The Supreme Court had on 14th January, 2020, declared Senator Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress [APC] as the winner of the election despite finishing fourth on the table of the Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC].
The court also ordered Hon. Ihedioha to vacate the Douglas House and that INEC issued Certificate of Return to Senator Uzodinma.
In a statement issued on Thursday in owerri, Dr. Udokwu described the report a cheap propaganda and the mother of all lies.
The statement said “My attention has been drawn to the online news making the round that I addressed the teaming supporters of H.E. Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, who gathered at the Kalu Nwankwo Sports Centre today for a prayer session, informing them of the intention and indeed the decision of H.E Ihedioha to withdraw the matter at the Supreme court coming up on Monday 2nd of March 2020.
“I hereby state once again that this is cheap propaganda and the mother of all lies.
“The gathering was purely for prayers and I did not address the people let alone telling them that H.E. Rt Hon Ihedioha is planning to withdraw the matter in court.”
Udokwu warned Ihedioha’s detractors to desist from further action detrimental to the interest of Imo residents .
