Imo PDP declares 7-day fasting for return of Ihedioha as governor

The Imo state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has declared a week of fasting and prayer for the return of Emeka Ihedioha as governor of the state.

The party also asked its members in the state to dress in black during the fasting session which will commence on Sunday, February 8, and end on Sunday, February 16.


Ray Emeana, the party’s state secretary in a statement issued on Saturday, said: “During this period, all ward excos should request for mass in their local churches and assemble at LGA party secretariats daily at noon for prayers and breaking of fast.

“Prayer point is asking God to intervene and restore the victory of Emeka Ihedioha as the duly elected governor of Imo State.

“We enjoin the Imo people to remain peaceful and prayerful as we await judgment on the review filed by the winner of the governorship election, Hon. Emeka Ihedioha at the supreme court.”


The supreme court on January 14 declared Uzodinma as the duly elected governor of Imo state and ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue him a certificate of return.

Ihedioha has approached the apex court seeking a review of the judgment.
