Supreme Court Sets Dec 5 for Hearing Suit Seeking Uzodimma’s Removal



1698725824 Uzodinma
The application filed by the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) seeking the removal of Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State from office will be heard by the Supreme Court on December 5.

In 2020, APGA filed the appeal after the Supreme Court invalidated the election of Emeka Ihedioha, who was then the sitting governor of Imo State and a member of the Peoples Democratic Party.

At the time of his removal, Ihedioha had been in office for only eight months when the apex court declared Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress as the winner.

APGA argues that the Supreme Court should have ordered a fresh election after removing Ihedioha instead of appointing Uzodinma as his replacement.

After three years since the application was filed, the Supreme Court recently informed the parties involved that the case would be heard on October 31.

However, when journalists visited the Supreme Court on Tuesday, the case was not listed on the cause list.

An apex court registrar later disclosed that the case had been rescheduled for December 5.

No specific reasons were given for the postponement.
