In action to register its dissatisfaction over the sacking of Emeka Ihedioha as the governor of Imo state, a group has pleaded President Donald Trump to place visa ban to the seven Supreme Court justices who unanimously announced Uzodinma as the winner of the March 9, 2019 governorship election held in the state.
It was reported that the group known as the Imo Diaspora coalition for justice and democracy in a petition begged President Trump to place the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Tanko Muhammad, Sylvester Ngwuta, Kudirat Kekekere-Ekun, Olukayode Ariwoola, Amiru Sanusi, Amina Augie and Uwani Abba-Aji on “visa ban” or “no-fly zone.”
It was compiled that the group declared that fake results were added to the total accredited voters in the state which was 823,743 out of which only 714,355 voted to now become 928,054 votes.
They, however, asked the Supreme Court to overturn the judgment saying, “Nigeria’s legal system allows for the Supreme Court to reverse itself in particular conditions, including where the judgement was obtained by dishonest manifestation as in the case herein.”
Meanwhile, it had been previously reported that Justice Tanko was absent when the Supreme Court began its judgement in the governorship appeal on Kano state.
