Hope Uzodimma, the governor of Imo State, claimed on Friday that the electorate’s rejection of the opposition in the off-cycle election last Saturday depended on the charter of equity.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) presented Uzodimma with his certificate of return on Friday in Owerri, the state capital.
These leaders supported me for a second and final term because I am (from) Orlu. Because the charter does not restrict anyone’s constitutional rights, they pleaded with the Imo people to only allow residents of the Orlu zone to run in the most recent election.
“The people rejected our brothers from Owerri and Okigwe despite their continued contention.” Because they flouted the tide, which the charter of equity represents, they were rejected.
Uzodimma receives a certificate of return and declares the election to be “most peaceful” in Imo.
The governor emphasized that only candidates from the Orlu zone had been recommended by the Imo Charter of Equity, which was created to keep the state’s leadership transition in order.
However, he emphasized that the electorate rejected these candidates because they went against popular opinion.
Uzodinma also emphasized the crucial role the charter of equity played in his reelection, claiming that voters supported it to ensure order in the state’s upcoming elections.
In other words, he added, the charter of equity was crucial to my reelection, aside from my performance.
“People voted in favor of the charter so that moving forward, the state’s election process will be less expensive and rancour-free.”
