Emeka Ihedioha, the Imo State governor who was sacked from the office the office by the Supreme court on 14th January, 2020, he has described his sack as Imo State governor by the Supreme Court as a mystery which was never anticipated that was never anticipated.
He described 14th January, 2020 as; ‘BLACK TUESDAY’, stating that he pitied anyone celebrating the event. Speaking when members of the Peoples Democratic Party National Working Committee paid him a courtesy visit in his Abuja home, Ihedioha said that he took solace in the word of God, which says there is a season and time for every purpose under heaven. This is a replica of the kind of attention the event of that Black Tuesday 14th January, 2020 resonated across the country.
We are as shocked as yourselves, it was never anticipated. All legal pundits and democratic watchers never imagined and anticipated. So, for us it remains a mystery.
I believe that that event will define obviously our democracy. I am convinced that the judiciary and electoral system are well aware that they are on trial. And what is fundamental about this is that the facts of the matters as relates to Imo State governorship election is that the foundation of our democratic processes, the elections in Imo were closely monitored, well advertised and everybody in Nigeria followed it through.
The results were very clear, the electoral umpire still have the results, and INEC has stated clearly that the results in question and the figures are not summing up.
This is not about Emeka Ihedioha, not about Imo State, its about the future of our country and democracy. This will make history in many ways and so this is a historical process, historical action, and I am sure there will be historical answers at the end of the day.
