A group, Movement for the Advancement of Democracy in Nigeria, has said the Supreme Court ought to have ordered a re-election in Imo State, instead ofdeclaring Senator Hope Nzodinma as Governor. The group said neither Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) nor Senator Nzodinma met the criterion of geo-electoral spread as enshrined in the electoral law.
