A massive protest organized by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rocked the capital city of Imo state, Oweri and Federal Capital Territory Abuja on Sunday 19th January 2020, over the supreme court verdict that voided the election of Emeka Ihedioha and declared Hope Uzodinma of APC winner of the Governorship election.
A 7-man panel of the Supreme court had upturned the ruling of the court of appeal and declared Hope Uzodinma governor of Imo state. The PDP has vowed to continue the protest in Abuja on Monday 20th Jan 2020. The PDP want supreme court verdict upturned.
