The Supreme Court has once again, adjourned the hearing of an application for a review of its judgment, which sacked Emeka Ihedioha as the Governor of Imo State.
Emeka Ihedioha and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) had approached the apex court, seeking a review of the judgment passed on January 14 which nullified his election and declared Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the winner of the election.
The seven-man panel of justices who presided over the case on Monday March 2, adjourned the case till Tuesday March 3 after Ihedioha’s counsel, Kanu Agabi pleaded for more time to respond to an application by Uzodinma’s legal team.
”The matter was adjourned for hearing and just a few moments ago we were served with a process and we will have to look at it. If it is convenient for us to come back tomorrow.” Agabi said while speaking to newsmen.
Uzodinma’s counsel, Damian Dodo who also spoke to newsmen, expressed readiness to proceed with the hearing.
“The applicants were served with the process this morning because they filed on Friday. Today is the earliest we could file. We are prepared to proceed.” Dodo said.
