The All Progressives Congress (APC) has described the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s protest against the Supreme court’s judgement on Imo governorship election as a disgrace.

The leaders of the opposition party embarked on a peaceful protest in Abuja on Monday.

The apex court had sacked Emeka Ihedioha, PDP candidate, and declared Hope Uzodinma, APC candidate, as the duly elected governor of Imo, a judgement that was outrightly rejected by the opposition party.

In a statement, Lanre Issa-Onilu, APC spokesman, asked security operatives to arrest those trying to overheat the polity, saying said the protest is disgraceful and senseless.

He said, “The disgraceful and senseless protest embarked upon by the opposition party is being done with the sole purpose of dragging the apex court of our land, and indeed our great country into odium and scorn before the international community. ”

“We also view the irascible actions and irresponsible remarks by the PDP as a calculated attempt to overheat the polity. PDP has become a present threat to our peaceful coexistence.

“The crux of the decision was that the PDP candidate (who had been adjudged to have been wrongfully declared the winner by the Resident Electoral Commissioner of Imo State) was removed by the apex court and Sen. Hope Uzodinma of our party was declared the rightful winner of the election.

“The court directed the Independent National Electoral Commission to issue a Certificate of Return to Sen. Hope Uzodinma and that he should be sworn in as the Governor ofImoo state.

“This decision by the apex court was not made lightly but was, in fact, based on the facts presented by the parties and the law canvassed before it by their respective counsel. How else should a court of law determine a case before it? Based on innuendos, conjecture, suspicions and conspiracy theories? Certainly not.”
