Imo guber election: PDP candidate Anyanwu rejects tribunal verdict



The Imo State candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the 2023 November 11 gubernatorial election, Samuel Nnaemeka Anyanwu, has vowed to appeal against the verdict of the election petition tribunal that affirmed the victory of Governor Hope Uzodinma.

A press statement signed by his media aide, Ikenna Onuoha, said: “The ruling of the tribunal was another clear case of misplaced judgement, which violates the substance of the petitions challenging monumental election irregularities, falsification of results and disqualification.

“Today, there is a charged atmosphere in Imo State. The faces of Imo people are looking moody and unhappy. This shows that their efforts to enthrone good governance by voting for me as their preferred candidate have been hijacked. We can’t accept this judgement. We shall utilise all constitutional means to regain our mandate. In a few days, my legal team will be done with the review of the verdict. Thereafter, we shall do the needful.”

The statement further informed that the PDP candidate maintained that he has substantial merit that gave him more legal strength to pursue the case to its final stage and enjoined his supporters to remain calm and resolute as they are going to reclaim their stolen mandate.
