Protest have rocked the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja over the Supreme Court judgement which sacked Emeka Ihedioha of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as Imo Governor, and declared Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as governor.

The #SaveTheJudiciary protesters took to the streets of Abuja calling for a reversal of the judgment on Imo Guber Election.

Members of the Peoples Democratic Party carried placards which showed: “IMO judgement is a fraud,” “Our judicial system is not a department of the APC”, “Stop robbing PDP of its mandate,” “Stop influencing the judiciary”, ” Stop compromising our judiciary, ” and “Ogun PDP says no to injustice”.

 Similar protests were staged in many states across the federation, including Ogun, Taraba, Gombe, and Abia on Sunday.

Last Tuesday, the court, in a unanimous decision, ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue Uzodinma a certificate of return.

A seven-man panel, in its decision held that Ihedioha did not win the majority of votes cast at the March 9, 2019 governorship election.
