The Supreme Court on Tuesday adjourned the hearing of former governor of Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha’s application seeking the review of the January 14 judgment which sacked him as governor to March 2, 2020.
The Supreme Court had fixed today to hear the appeal filed by Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), 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.
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.
Recall that the apex court led by the CJN had in the January 14, 2020 judgment removed Iheodioha as the Imo State governor and declared Uzodinma as the winner of the last governorship election in the state.
