Supreme Court Takes Decision on case seeking to sack Uzodimma

The Supreme Court has moved hearing on the application by the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) seeking to remove Hope Uzodimma from office as Imo state governor to December 5, 2023.

The apex court had fixed Tuesday, October 31, 2023, for the commencement of a hearing on the matter.

Court adjourns case seeking Uzodimma’s removal

It would be recalled that APGA in 2020 filed an application contending that there ought to have been a fresh gubernatorial election in Imo state after the apex court nullified the election of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate Emeka Ihedioha.

The party said the Supreme Court need to rule on the validity of Uzodimma’s candidacy.

MaaziTV  understands that in the PDP’s appeal, Uzodimma’s candidacy was not challenged by Ihedioha and his party.

The PDP’s application was filed on July 9, 2020, but the Supreme Court did not give the party a hearing date, until this week — over three years later.

However, when journalists visited the apex court on Tuesday, the matter was not listed on the court’s case list.

A report by the Guardian newspaper said the apex court has again postponed the case till December 5, 2023.

It is understood that no reason was given for the adjournment.
