The national chairman of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has reacted to the Supreme Court dismissal of the application of Emeka Ihedioha, former governor of Imo state, seeking a review of the judgement which sacked him by describing the judgement as ‘refreshing.’
Oshiomhole made this known while fielding questions from newsmen shortly after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday.
“I think is refreshing and quite predictable in the sense that from the attitude of the supreme court last week on Bayelsa that nothing was wrong with the candidate, the lower court did not disqualify the candidate, the issue of the candidate was not before the supreme court and yet the supreme court made a decision.
“We know that Ihedioha did not have the required number and that is a fact that nobody has ever disputed. How anybody thought he can impose someone who did not meet the spread is only known to PDP.
“Because they specialise in rigging and they see rigging as their birthright. So I think what the supreme court has done today is just to reaffirm that they are supreme and whatever they did the last time was on the basis of what was before them.
“They did not make mistakes, there are no gaps, no ambiguity and therefore there was no basis to re-approach them to seat on the appeal in their own judgement. We are happy and we thank God that the whole litigation process has come to an end.”
