UZODINMA INSISTS SUPREME COURT CAN’T SIT ON APPEAL OVER ITS FINAL JUDGEMENTS
Written by thereachfm on February 18, 2020
Meanwhile governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has filed a preliminary objection to challenge the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court to review its January 14 judgement that brought him to power.
In a motion he jointly filed with the All Progressive Congress, Uzodinma, maintained that the apex court has lost its powers to hear and determine any application relating to the governorship election that held in Imo state on March 9, 2019.
Consequently, he urged the court to dismiss the fresh application that was filed by ousted governor of the state, Emeka Ihedioha and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, which is seeking to set-aside the judgement that declared him as the valid winner of the Imo governorship contest.
