0 249

Some church leaders in Imo state have joined voices to the call for the Supreme Court to review its judgement in the governorship election in the state.

The church leaders under the aegis of the concerned Church Leaders Forum,  while reacting to the judgement enjoined indigenes of the state and all interest groups to ensure that the only way of peace, maturity and godliness was employed in handling the sensitive issue.

At a forum jointly convened by Dr. Cosmos Ilechukwu of the Charismatic Renewal Ministries (CRM) and the Anglican Bishop of Ohaji/Egbema diocese, Bishop Chidi Oparaojiaku, the church leaders made their position known.

Oparaojiaku in a statement on behalf of the church leaders which was made available to newsmen expressed concern over the political development in the state and the consequent gloom, despair and despondency which had engulfed the nation particularly in Imo.

“The Supreme Court judgment of January 14, 2020 runs counter to the facts on the ground and raises a lot of questions. It is not that the Christian leaders hate the newly sworn in government of Imo state who is undoubtedly an Imolite but the judgment has raised a lot of unanswered questions”. We are deeply worried at what will be the fate of future elections in Nigeria if the courts are allowed to use technicalities to subvert the will of the electorates.

“Any democracy where the people are made irrelevant in election cannot be said to be a democracy. The general public and especially Imolites will like to know how the Supreme Court arrived at the decision which plants injustices”, the statement stated.

The men of God who professed their faith in the God of justice, who they serve and represent on earth further said, “We have a firm confidence and unflinching faith that God who is the supreme judge of all the earth has the final verdict in the matter”.
