Imo state governor-elect,Hope Uzodinma freezes Imo state bank accounts

The governor-elect of Imo State,Hope Uzodinma, has issued an order to financial institutions, freezing bank accounts of the state, demanding that no transactions be honoured from the government of Emeka Ihedioha or his officials.

This order came a few hours after the Supreme Court declared him the duly elected governor of the state on Tuesday.

According to a statement released by the Director-General, Hope Uzodinma’s Campaign Organisation, Chief Cosmas Iwu, the governor elect instructed that no bank should honor any transaction request from any member of the Emeka Ihedioha-led government. The statement reads.

“Following the Supreme Court judgment of 14th January 2020, I am directed by His Excellency, Senator Hope Uzodinma to take this to your authority/instruction to place a Post No Debit (PND) order on all accounts of the Imo State Government maintained in your various institutions.

“You are by this letter, directed to comply and await further instructions from the office of his excellency, the Executive Governor of Imo state”.Thanks for your cooperation.”

However, the Supreme Court sacked Ihedioha and announced Uzodinma as the duly elected governor of Imo State on Tuesday, in a court judgement by a seven-man panel led by the Chief Justice of the Nation, Tanko Muhammed.

Recall that in the February 2019 elections, Uzodinma who ran for governor of Imo State under the flagship of the All Progressives Congress (APC), emerged fourth with a total of 96,458 votes, while Uche Nwosu of Action Alliance (AA) was second with 190,364 votes and Ifeanyi Ararueme of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), announced as third in the race with 114,676 votes.

A State of anomie sprayed with a miasma of legal toxins…

According to reports a total of 823, 743 voters were accredited to vote in the elections held that day, but only 739, 485 voters eventually did cast their votes out of which 25, 135 votes were cancelled or voided by INEC for irregularities thereby living us with a total lawful or valid votes of 714, 355.

Flowing from the above one therefore begins to wonders how the Supreme Court arrived at the figure of 927,630 as total lawful or valid votes cast.

A
Total Accredited voters…..823,743
Total votes cast–……………739,485
Cancelled votes……………. .25,130
Valid votes…………….. ..714,355

B
Votes scored by each political party’s Candidate before the Supreme Court Judgement:

1. Emeka Ihedioha………….273,404
2. Uche Nwosu……………… 190,364
3. Ifeanyi Arerauma………..114,676
4. Hope uzodinma…………..96,458.
5. Others had………………… 39,433

Grand total…………………….714,335.

C
The Supreme Court in her judgement added 213,295 votes to Hope Uzodinma’s Original votes of 96,458 thereby bringing his total number of votes to 309, 753 votes.

D
Votes scored (allocated) after the Supreme Court Judgement

1. Emeka Ihedioha……. 273,404
2. Uche………………. ……..190,364
3. Ifeanyi…………………….114,676
4. Hope UZODINMA…….309,753
5. Others has ……………. 39,433

TOTAL………… ……. …….927,630.

E
Even if we take the total number of accredited Voters without any cancellations or voided votes the figures will still not add up – the final tally of votes will still be higher than the number of accredited voters. Now, we are not even talking of actual votes cast less voided or cancelled votes yet.

1. Supreme Court Judgement Votes …… ..927, 630
2. Voters accredited by INEC was…… . … 823, 743
3. Difference …………………………………………103, 887

Except of course if this numbers are not correct, right or accurate otherwise this whole thing smacks of….. mischief

Is there any remedy for Emeka Ihedioha after this judgement , that’s if it is eventually established that, the Court erred in her judgement?

I present this as a puzzle for further interrogation!
