Imo Governorship Election: Supreme Court Adjourns PDP Appeal.

On January 14, 2020, the Supreme court sacked Emeka Ihedioha of the PDP as Governor of Imo State and pronounced Hope Uzodinma of the APC, winner of the March 2019 governorship election in the southeast state.

However Ihedioha, his PDP supporters and loyalists kicked against the ruling and formally asked the Supreme Court to review its judgment, citing legal flaws

The Supreme Court has fixed March 2, 2020, for hearing on the application seeking a review of its judgment on the Imo governorship election.
But the case has now been adjourned to March 2, following a request by Kanu Agabi, Ihedioha’s counsel.

After all the parties in the matter announced their appearances, Agabi asked the court to grant him a brief adjournment of not more than seven days to enable him file and receive all processes needed to prove his case.

Counsel to Uzodinma and APC, Damian Dodo (SAN) did not oppose the application.
