The Supreme Court has postponed the hearing on the application made by the All Progressives Grand Alliance seeking to remove Hope Uzodinma as the governor of Imo State to December 5.
According to The PUNCH, the apex court had scheduled the hearing for October 31, 2023.
In 2020, APGA filed an application asserting that a fresh election should have been conducted in the state after the Supreme Court nullified the election of Emeka Ihedioha, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party.
APGA argued that the Supreme Court did not rule on the validity of Uzodinma’s candidacy as it was not contested by Ihedioha and the PDP in the appeal designated as SC/1462/2019.
After a three-year period since the application was originally submitted, the Supreme Court had initially scheduled its hearing for Tuesday.
However, when journalists arrived at the apex court on that day, the case was conspicuously absent from the court’s case list.
A registrar from the Supreme Court informed the journalists that the case had been rescheduled for December 5.
There was no reason given for the postponement of the case to December 5.
