The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Imo State governorship election, Emeka Ihedioha, has emerged governor-elect of the state.

Ihedioha, a former Deputy Speaker of the House of Assembly, secured 273,404 votes to defeat Uche Nwosu of the Action Alliance (AA) and Senator Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Nwosu, who was backed by Governor Rochas Okorocha, finished second with 190,364 votes; followed by Senator Uzodinma who got 96,458 votes.

Ihedioha was declared the winner by the Returning Officer for the election, Professor Francis Ogbonnaya Otunta, at 11:57 pm on Monday night, bringing to a conclusion a dramatic collation process which also witnessed the arrest of two electoral officers for allegedly tampering with results.

Good for people of IMO state. For 8 solid years, the state was held captive by a comedian who calls himself a Governor. He was once given a title "Okpu uzu 1 of IMO state" (a sculpture). He was also given the title "IBERIBERISM 1 of IMO state". (One who exhibits useless character).
People of IMO state will surely miss his iberiberism because whenever he is around there's no dull moment. His opening speech to the crowd is ... "My people, my people" and the crowd will respond, "My governor, my governor".
I pity him and his wife because he will live a recluse life whenever he visits IMO state. "No more monkey dey work, baboon dey chop" again.
