The Supreme Court has on Tuesday adjourned the hearing of the application filed by Emeka Ihedioha seeking a review of the judgement that installed APC’s Hope Uzodinma as governor of Imo State.
The hearing was adjourned because according to Ihedioha’s counsel, processes were still being filed.
Emeka Ihedioha is contesting the January 14, 2020 judgement which deemed him not to have fulfilled the constitutional requirement of garnering the maximum number of votes in the State’s gubernatorial election.
His lawyer, Chief Kanu Agabi (SAN) said, “My lords, processes are still coming in. Up till this morning, we were still receiving processes. We, therefore, apply for an adjournment to enable all the processes to come in.”
Counsel for Uzodinma and the All Progressives Congress, Damian Dodo (SAN), and counsel for the Independent National Electoral Commission, Taminu Inuwa (SAN), agreed to the adjournment.
The hearing was subsequently adjourned to March 2, 2020.
