Imo Governorship: Again, Supreme Court Adjourns Ruling To March 3, As Ihedioha’s Lawyer Pleads For More Time
The Supreme Court has adjourned until Tuesday hearing in an 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 had on January 14, 2020, declared Senator Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress winner of the governorship election in Imo, bringing the reign of Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party to an abrupt end.
Counsel to Ihedioha, Kanu Agabi, pleaded with the court on Monday for one day adjournment to help him with more knowledge into the process that had just been served.
Counsel to Uzodinma, Demian Dodo, did not oppose the application made by Agabi.
Chief Justice of Nigeria, Mohammed Tanko, who led a seven-man panel, granted the prayers and adjourned the matter until Tuesday.
