‘Ihedioha can never forget Mbaka’ — Twitter reactions to supreme court’s ruling on Imo

Mansur Ibrahim

The supreme court on Tuesday sacked Emeka Ihedioha as governor of Imo state, affirming Hope Uzodinma as winner of the March 9 election.

In a unanimous decision, a seven-man panel held that Ihedioha did not win majority of votes cast in the election.

The judgment generated diverse reactions on social media.

Rochas Okorocha, former governor of Imo, was among those who hailed the apex court’s judgment.

“Today, my HOPE in the Nigerian state has been further strengthened. The Supreme Court has delivered justice to the good people of Imo state and reinforced our belief that illegality has no place in our polity. I congratulate Governor Hope Uzodinma wholeheartedly,” Okorocha tweeted.

A Twitter user, Arinze Odira, said contractors who borrowed money under Ihedioha’s administration should brace up.

“If Emeka Ihedioha gave you a contract and you borrowed money from the bank to finance it, brace yourself, you might be in for a very long thing.”
