The erstwhile governor of Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha’s fresh application will be giving a new hearing by the Supreme Court on February 18, as he will be challenging the judgement earlier delivered on January 14.
NEWSCASTARS.COM learnt from Daily Trust report that a message was circulated on Saturday announcing the hearing date.
But Festus Jombo, one of the lawyers representing Governor Hope Uzodinma, said although he heard about the new date, the office has not been served the hearing notice.
Ihedioha in the application dated February 5, 2020 and brought through his counsel and former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Kanu Agabi (SAN) is praying the apex court to set aside the judgement.
Ihedioha and PDP listed five grounds which they said the apex court erred in arriving at its decision to nullify the March 9, 2019 election and declare Uzodinmma winner of the election after he presented excluded results from 388 polling units.
The fresh application is brought under Section 6(6) of the Nigerian Constitution 1999 and Section 22 of the Supreme Court Act, 2004.
