Supreme Court Adjourns Hearing Of Ihedioha’s Case to March 2
The Supreme Court has adjourned the hearing of former governor of Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha to March 2, 2020.
Mr Ihedioha is seeking a review of the apex court’s judgment on the state 2019 governorship election which ousted him at the last governorship election in the state.
One month after it sacked him on January 14 and declared the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Hope Uzodinma, as the duly elected governor of Imo State, the Supreme Court had fixed today to hear the appeal filed by Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
At the hearing today, lawyer to Mr Ihedioha, Mr Kanu Agabi, filed an application stating that he needs a little time to file some processes before the Court.
Lawyers to Governor Hope Uzodinma and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) did not oppose the application.
The seven-man panel of the apex court led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Mohammed, after listening to all the parties, adjourned the hearing to March 2, 2020.
