The Imo state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Saturday, February 8, has declared a 7-day of fasting and prayer for the return of Hon Emeka Ihedioha as governor of the state.
According to the party guideline, the fasting session will commence on Sunday, February 8, and end on Sunday, February 16.
The party also asked its members in the state to dress in black during the fasting .
In a statement released on Saturday by the State party secretary, Mr Ray Emeana, 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.”
Recall that the Supreme Court on January 14 sacked Emeka Ihedioha of the PDP and declared Senator Hope 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.
