The 2019 Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate in Imo State, Mr Emeka Ihedioha, has said the judiciary and electoral system in Nigeria are on trial.
Ihedioha stated this on Saturday when members of the PDP National Working Committee led by its National Chairman, Mr Uche Secondus, paid him a solidarity visit at his Abuja residence.
Ihedioha lost his mandate as the governor of Imo last week following a Supreme Court verdict, pronouncing Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressive Congress as the winner of the 2019 governorship election in the state.
Ihedioha said though the verdict was a shock to him, he remained calm and would always take solace in God at all times.
“We are faithful believers in God and God does not sleep. This will make history in many ways and so this is a historical process, historical action, and I am sure there will be historical answers at the end of the day.
“I want to assure you that we will remain resolute and committed to the ideals of our great party.
“I want to say that the event will not put into question our faith in the Nigerian nation. It will not question our commitment to democracy, it will rather strengthen our resolve to match forward and make Nigeria a greater nation.
“I am certain that the judiciary and electoral system are well aware that they are on trial.
“I am certain that from the event of that day, Nigeria will emerge a stronger and greater country,” he said.
