Okorocha, who is representing Imo West Senatorial zone at the National Assembly, said he would support Uzodinma’s government to succeed in Imo.
Okorocha, who disclosed this through a statement issued by his media aide, Mr Sam Onwuemeodo, said the judgment represented the choice of Imo people.
“I want to congratulate Hope Uzodinma for his victory at the Supreme Court and we will all work together to ensuring that his government succeeds.
“This is an indication of a new hope in Imo, everybody must remain calm and watch Uzodinma unfolds what he has for Imo.” Okorocha said.
