Atiku Abubakar, former Vice President has reacted to the Supreme Court ruling which declared Senator Hope Uzodinma winner of Imo election.
The apex court had on Tuesday removed Gov Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and declared the All Progressive Congress, APC’s Hope Uzodinma as the Governor of Imo State.
Delivering the judgment, Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun said 236,000 votes due to Uzodinma and APC from 318 polling units were wrongly excluded and should be added.
On his Twitter page, Atiku urged Nigerians to accept Supreme Court ruling.
The presidential candidate of the People Democratic Party, PDP during last election wrote: “With regards to the judgment of the Supreme Court, which nullified the election of the candidate of the PDP, Emeka Ihedioha, as Governor of the state of Imo, I can only say that since the Supreme Court is final, we must accept its judgment.”
