Imo Election: Supreme Court Adjourns Hearing Of Ihedioha’s Case

The Supreme Court has adjourned till March, hearing of the application by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and Emeka Ihedioha for a review of its earlier decision on the Imo State governorship election.

The supreme court was to take a second look at its January judgment that sent shivers into the camp of the PDP as it nullified the election of PDP candidate, Emeka Ihedioha, as the rightfully elected governor of Imo State.  Hope Izodinma of All Progressives Congress, APC, was declared winner instead.
