The Supreme Court has adjourned hearing on the case by the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), seeking to remove Governor Hope Uzodinma from office as Imo state governor to 5th December.
Note that the apex court had recently fixed October 31, 2023, for the commencement of a hearing on the matter.
Recall that APGA in 2020 filed an application where the party contended that there ought to have been a fresh election in the state after the apex court nullified the election of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate Emeka Ihedioha, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party.
The party said the Supreme Court did not rule on the validity of Uzodinma’s candidacy since it was not challenged by Ihedioha and the PDP in the appeal which was marked SC/1462/2019.
It was three years after the application was filed, that the apex court fixed its hearing on Tuesday 31st Oct. 2023.
However, when journalists visited the apex court on Tuesday, the matter was not listed on the court’s cause list hence the adjournment.
One of the apex court registrars told journalists that the case had been moved to December 5th, 2023.
No reasons were given for the postponement of the case he said..
