A former governor of Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha, has lost his case against the current governor of the state, Hope Uzodimma.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday, dismissed an application by Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party, seeking to be issued a certificate of return as rightful Governor of the state.
The former lawmaker in his application, stated that Governor Uzodinma wasn’t qualified to run in the first place.
However, the Apex Court in a ruling read by Justice Tijjani Abubakar on Tuesday, dismissed the application for lack of merit.
The Apex Court described the application as unnecessary and vexatious, and as a result of that, awarded the cost of N40 million against Mike Ozekhome for bringing the matter before the court.
