Imo: S/Court adjourns till Tuesday hearing on Ihedioha, Uzodinma’s argument



The Supreme Court adjourned until Tuesday hearing in application filed by Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), asking it to review a judgment on Imo governorship that declared Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) winner of the March 9, 2019, election.

The apex court adjourned the hearing due to an application filed by Kanu Agabi, who is Ihedioha’s lead counsel.

Agabi, SAN, told the court that he had just been served with some processes by Governor Hope Uzodinma and needs time to respond.

Mr Ihedioha and the PDP had approached the court after the apex court on January 14 nullified his victory and declared Mr Uzodinma as the winner of the election.

Ihedioha was earlier declared the winner of the election by the electoral umpire, INEC.(NAN)
