Bishops of the Anglican Church in Nigeria have rejected the January 14th Supreme Court’s judgment that nullified the election of Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as Imo state governor and replaced him with Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Speaking on behalf of the Bishops, the Archbishop of Enugu Province, Dr. Emmanuel Chukwuma, said there was no way Imo state indigenes could have voted en masse for Uzodinma going by Rochas Okorocha’s antecedents,
“I am speaking the minds of most of the Bishops of the Anglican Church that we are very much discontented and very much in disagreement with the kangaroo judgment of the Supreme Court and what has happened in Imo State.
“Hope Uzodinma is my friend. I am not against him but I am against the Supreme Court justices who mutilated the result, judging the case on the total votes that were more than accredited votes, which is absolutely incongruous and very much antithetical to the democratic spirit.
