Emeka Ihedioha / Hope Uzodinma

The Supreme Court has adjourned its hearing of the application filed by the Peoples Democratic Party’s PDP Candidate, Emeka Ihedioha in Imo State to March 3rd.

Mr. Ihedioha is asking the Apex Court to set aside its judgment of January 14th that sacked him as Governor of Imo State.

The Court adjourned hearing due to an application filed by Kanu Agabi (SAN), who is Ihedioha’s lead counsel.

The Senior Advocate informed the court that he had just been served with some processes by Governor Hope Uzodinma and needed time to respond.

Lawyer to Uzodinma and the APC, Damian Dodo (SAN) admitted serving Agabi a moment before the court sat.

Similarly, Counsel to the Independent National Electoral Commission, Tanimu Inuwa- SAN, objected to an adjournment stating that he was ready for the hearing.

The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Ibrahim who led the Court’s seven-man panel, acceded to Agabi’s request and adjourned till March 3rd, 2020 for hearing.
