The Progressive Governors Forum of the All Progressives Congress has commended the Supreme Court judgment declaring the party’s candidate, Hope Uzodinma, as winner of the 2019 governorship election.
In a statement signed by its Chairman, Abubakar Bagudu, in Abuja on Wednesday, the forum congratulated Uzodinma on his victory at the Supreme Court.
Bagudu said the judgment affirmed Uzodinma’s victory in the March 9, 2019 governorship election in Imo State.
He said: “We rejoice with you and the people of Imo State, and all lovers of democracy and justice in Nigeria in this rightly deserved victory that restored your stolen mandate.
“We in particular wish to commend your doggedness, resilience, commitment to the rule of law and abiding faith in the judiciary that culminated into this ultimate victory. It is victory at last for us all.
“We also congratulate President Muhammadu Buhari, our party leaders in Imo State in particular and national level as we welcome you to the fold of Progressive Governors as you take over the mantle of leadership in Imo state.”
