Imo Governorship Review: Supreme Court Adjourns Hearing

The Supreme Court of Nigeria had on Monday, adjourned hearing in the review application case filed by the sacked Imo State governor, Emeka Ihedioha, until Tuesday.

Mr Ihedioha and his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), have approached the Supreme Court, asking it to review the judgment of January 14, which nullified his victory and declared Mr Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the winner of the March 9, 2019, governorship elections in the state.

The seven man panel of Justices had in a unanimous judgment, read by Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun, agreed Uzondinma’s prayers that results in 388 polling units were unlawfully excluded during the collation of the final governorship election result in Imo State.

The Supreme Court therefore, gave judgment in favour of Uzodinma, saying with the added results from the 388 polling units, Mr Uzodinma polled a majority of the lawful votes, thereby declaring him as the winner of the March 9, 2019, governorship elections in the state.
