National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, and the party’s vice presidential candidate in the 2019 general elections, Peter Obi, have led a protest against the judgement of the Supreme Court which led to the sack of Emeka Ihedioha as governor of Imo State.
The protest comes about a week after the apex court declared Hope Uzodinma as winner of the election held last March.
Senate minority leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe, and former lawmaker, Dino Melaye, were also part of the march on Monday.
The protest began from the party’s campaign headquarters, Legacy House, in Maitama district of Abuja to the Supreme Court headquarters.
The protesters held placards which read: “Save Judiciary”, “Presidency and Judiciary Murder Democracy” and “We say no to Supreme Court judgement in Imo” among others.
A similar protest was held in Imo State on Sunday by Ihedioha’s supporters.
Dressed in black attires, the protesters alleged that their choice of leadership was subverted by the apex court.
