‘Only One Person, 50 Vehicles’, Wasteful Imo State Governor Hope Uzodinma’s Convoy Has Over 50 Vehicles
Imo residents groan ‘only one person’, 50 vehicles’, as Governor Hope Uzodinma’s heavily-guided convoy raced through the streets.
For this trip, Gov. Hope Uzodinma relied on the bulletproof Lexus LX570, a bunker that combines luxury and ruggedness in its DNA.
An act that most Nigerians labelled to be wasteful was seen in a video. This video has a convoy of over 50 cars which was allegedly said to belong to the CURRENT Governor of Imo State, Governor Hope Uzodinma.
In March 2019, the Independent National Electoral Commission sitting in Imo announced the governorship election results of Imo State: Emeka Ihedioha of the PDP who won with 273,404 votes, Uche Nwosu of Action Alliance with 190,364 votes, Ifeanyi Ararume of the All Progressives Grand Alliance with 114,676 votes; and Uzodinma in fourth place with 96,458 votes.
Uzodinma later challenged the victory of Ihedioha up to the Supreme Court. On 14 January 2020, the Supreme Court declared Uzodinma, the duly elected Governor of Imo State. The court held that results from 388 polling units were wrongly excluded from votes ascribed to Uzodinma and the APC in Imo adding that the first appellant Uzodinma holds the majority of lawful votes cast.
