The Supreme Court, on Tuesday, postponed the hearing of an appeal seeking to invalidate Senator Hope Uzodinma’s years in office as the Governor of Imo state until December 5.
The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) applied for Governor Uzodinma’s removal, arguing that a fresh election was needed after the apex court nullified the election of Emeka Ihedioha. APGA also requested that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) conduct a new election in Imo State within 90 days.
The party contended that, in the eyes of the law, Imo State lacked a duly and validly elected governor based on two judgments of the apex court. PDP also filed appeals asking the Supreme Court to restore Ihedioha to office, claiming that Uzodinma was not the validly nominated APC candidate due to Nwosu’s dual nominations by APC and AA.
PDP argued that there was no legal basis for Uzodinma to be recognized as the validly elected governor.
