The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo state is taking every measure to restore the mandate of its governorship candidate, Emeka Ihedioha, who was ousted out of government house by the Supreme Court.

A statement signed by the party’s State Secretary, Nze Ray Emeana, on Saturday, states that the spiritual exercise would commence on Sunday, February 9, 2020.
