Written by thereachfm on February 18, 2020
The court had on January 14 dismissed Emeka Ihedioha from office and ordered INEC to declare Hope Uzodinma winner prompting Ihedioha to seek a review of the ruling
The apex court fixed today one month after it sacked Ihedioha on January 14 and declared the candidate of the All Progressives Congress Senator Hope Uzodinma, as the duly elected governor of Imo State.
INEC had since obeyed the court order and Uzodinma was subsequently sworn-in, and had since continued to steer the affairs of the state.
Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun, who delivered the judgment of the seven-man panel led by Chief Justice Tanko Muhammad, made it clear that the votes due to Uzodinma were unlawfully excluded from 388 polling units.
