Supreme Court adjourns review of Imo governorship verdict

The Supreme Court has adjourned the motion seeking review of its verdict of the governorship election in Imo State.

The apex court arrived at the conclusion after the legal counsel of Emeka Ihedioha, Kanu Agbai, applied for more time to file some processes before the court at the sitting earlier fixed to commence today.

Mr Ihedioha was sacked as Imo state governor by the apex court last month. It declared his opponent, Hope Uzodimma, as the duly elected governor of the South-East state.

Legal representatives of Mr Uzodimma and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) did not opposed the appeal by the legal team of the former governor.

Tanko Mohammad, the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) who heads a seven man panel reviewing the appeal, thereafter adjourned hearing to March 2, 2020.
