Imo: Group Asks Supreme Court To Determine 3-Year-Old Appeals Seeking Uzodinma’s Removal Before Nov 11 Guber

A public interest group known as Association for Public Policy Analysis has urged the Supreme Court headed by Chief Justice of Nigeria, Olukayode Ariwoola, to hear and determine all pending 2019 Imo State governorship election litigations before the November 11 gubernatorial poll.

Recall that the Supreme Court had fixed October 31, 2023 to hear two separate appeals filed in 2020, seeking to disqualify the All Progressives Congress (APC) from contesting in the 2019 Imo governorship election as well as remove Governor Hope Uzodimma from office.

The appeals are a fall out of two Supreme Court judgments delivered late 2019 and early 2020 regarding the Imo 2019 election.

The apex court had disqualified Ugwumba Uche Nwosu from contesting the 2019 guber poll, observing he held double nomination of the All Progressives Congress and Action Alliance (AA).
