The Supreme Court on Tuesday adjourned untill March 2, hearing in an application filed by Emeka Ihedioha, a former governor of Imo, seeking a review of the Jan. 14 judgment sacking him from office.
The court had been scheduled to review its earlier verdict which sacked Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and declared Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the validly elected governor of the state.
The Supreme Court’s decision followed an appeal filed by Ihedioha’s lawyers, seeking more time to represent their case.
Ihedioha had prayed the court to review the nullification of his election, on the grounds that there were flaws in the results arrived at after the court added votes from 388 cancelled polling units.
