Supreme Court Fixes Date To Hear Ihedioha’s Fresh Application


The Supreme Court has fixed Tuesday, February 18 for hearing in the fresh application by the sacked governor of Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha challenging the judgement earlier delivered on January 14.

A message to this effect was circulated on Saturday announcing the hearing date.

Ihedioha in the application dated February 5, 2020 and brought through his counsel and former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Kanu Agabi (SAN) is praying the apex court to set aside the judgement.

Ihedioha and PDP listed five grounds which they said the apex court erred in arriving at its decision to nullify the March 9, 2019 election and declare Uzodinmma winner of the election after he presented excluded results from 388 polling units.

He and the PDP based their arguments on Section 6(6) of the Nigerian Constitution 1999 and Section 22 of the Supreme Court Act, 2004.

Bittertruth Media recalls that the Supreme Court had nullified the election of Emeka Ihedioha of the PDP and declared Senator Hope Uzodinma as the rightful winner of the Imo State Governorship Election.
