The Supreme Court sacked-Governor of Imo State, Hon. Emeka Ihedioha has accused Governor Hope Uzodinma of feeding the people of Imo State with lies.

Ihedioha was reacting to the statement made by Governor Uzodinma during his media chat with correspondents at the Presidential Villa Abuja. He described the claims made concerning Supreme Court judgment as blatant lies and deliberate distortion of facts aimed at carrying legitimacy.

In a statement issued in Owerri by his Chief Press Secretary Chibuike Onyeukwu, Ihedioha insisted that the restoration of pipe-borne water and electricity, as well as payment of all outstanding salaries owed Imo workers which Governor Hope Uzodinma claimed to have achieved is also a fallacy.

He said it is surprising that Senator Uzodimma has resorted to telling lies to the people of Imo and Nigerians on the true state of affairs in Imo State.

The former Governor said that he did not bear any grudge on Uzodinma’s statement that the Supreme Court can not review its January 14, 2020 judgement, however, said it is the extent he knows, in order to sustain his deception and illegitimate government.

He said: “Truth remains that he is quite convinced that his position is founded on clear illegitimacy. Hence, he is not expected to say anything different from what he feels will interest his very few supporters”.

Ihedioha berated Governor Uzodinma for claiming that time for election petition has elapsed which prove the fact he was playing to the gallery.

He accused the Governor of what he described as failed ambushing of the Supreme Court adding that the Supreme Court knows that he has a very good case as shown in all the glaring facts of the matter and so does not require his lame opinion.

Ihedioha reminded the people of Imo state the salaries of the entire workers in the service from 70% to 100% as well as pensions was restored by him and they were paid as and when due to Imo workers until the Supreme Court judgement.

On Uzodinma’s claimed that no governor had visited State Secretariat, Owerri, Ihedioha dismissed that said that it as a height of mockery of the collective workforce in the state noting that he visited state Secretariat on the 2nd of July, 2019
