Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun who delivered the lead judgement declared Senator Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress, APC, as the valid winner of the governorship contest held in Imo state on March 9, 2019.

The Supreme Court, therefore, ordered the immediate withdrawal of the Certificate of Return that was issued to Ihedioha. It ordered that a fresh Certificate of Return should be issued to Uzodinma forthwith, adding that he should be sworn-in immediately as the governor of Imo state.
