New Legal Move To Sack Governor Hope Uzodinma: Someone May Be Operating Behind The Veil

Since the Supreme Court judgement that brought in Senator Hope Uzodinma as the Governor of Imo State, many indigent of the state still find it difficult to come to terms with the reality of life in the state regarding the Governorship position. After the Supreme Court judgement, Senator Rochas Okorcha who earlier on, was not in support of Hope Uzodinma was seen jubilating with the governor, leading many to conclude that they must have worked together for the interest of APC considering how Okorocha's anointed son, Uche Nwosu withdrew his case before the final judgement du to the fact that he was disqualified for being nominated by both APC and AA.

After his victory, many believed that Governor Hope Uzodinma would work to unite the two factions of APC in Imo by working together with both those loyal to him and those loyal to Rochas. This however, was not the case as the Governor was soon accused of marginalising APC members loyal to Rochas in his appointments. This did not go down with the faction that was neglected considering how they had supported the governor during the legal battle to reclaim the seat.

One the other hand, not being satisfied with the supreme court judgement that Sacked him as the Governor, honourable Emeka Ihedioha approached the supreme court again for the review of the judgement. However, his application for review was stuck out. Ihedioha and PDP believed that the judgement they received was not fair and this caused protests by the party members in Abuja.

Recently, Barrister Kingdom Okere who was the flag bearer of Reform and Advancement Party (RAP) approached the Federal High Court in Abuja, seeking a legal interpretation of the Supreme Court's Judgement which affirmed the nomination of Uche Nwosu as the authentic candidate of APC in the 2019 Imo of state Governorship election, on the same ground which Uche Nwosu was disqualified for double nomination. Recall that Uche Nwosu withdraw his suit challenging the victory of Ihedioha after he was disqualified by the Supreme Court for being nominated by both APC and AA. As it stands now, Uche Nwosu has joined the case filled by RAP as the real candidate of APC in the Imo Governorship election.

The case which also seek to know if Governor Hope Uzodinma had contested and won the election under the same APC that nominated Uche Nwosu, or contested with no political party is getting even more complicated by the day, suggesting that someone may be operating behind the veil. What is left to be known is whether it is the Rochas faction of APC who have been sidelined by the governor in his appointments or the PDP and Emeka Ihedioha. Could it be that RAP is operating alone?

In the coming days, we will get to find out if actually, someone is operating behind the veil or not. But no matter our findings in the coming days, the fact still remain that there are still forces rising up against the governor. How this will end is what we have to wait to find out.
