The Supreme Court has finally quashed the over bloated governorship ambition of Uche Nwosu, the son-in-law of former Governor Rochas Okorocha and his stooge through which Okorocha would have continued his stranglehold on the resources of Imo State and technically be holding office for a third term.
In a unanimous judgment, the Court in a Suit filed by the Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere led Action Peoples Party, APP, held that by virtue of Uche Nwosu’s double candidature and in line with the clear provisions of the Electoral Act, he was bound to be disqualified from the election and affirmed the judgments of the High Court and the Court of Appeal.
By this judgment, the Election Petition Appeal against the election of Governor Emeka Ihedioha also before the apex court by Uche Nwosu is also dead and buried. This is because Uche Nwosu was not a validly nominated candidate for the election and therefore lacks the locus to file a petition before the Governorship Election Tribunal.
While reacting to the judgment, the National Chairman of the Action Peoples Party, Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere declared that the significance of this judgment was that Imo State was finally liberated from the Okorocha dynasty which for eight years fleeced and destroyed the state. He expressed joy that his Party was the one that sealed the fate of the Okorochas and liberated Imo State from their shackle. He also called on the EFCC and the ICPC to take advantage of this judgment which has permanently robbed Uche Nwosu of his planned immunity and investigate him, Senator Rochas Okorocha and their ilk with a view to recovering every Imo kobo stolen by them.
