Imo: Supreme Court Dismisses Ihedioha’s Review Application

The Supreme Court in Abuja on Tuesday dismissed the application for review of its January 14, 2020, judgment which removed Emeka Ihedioha as Imo State Governor and declared Hope Uzodinma as the valid winner of the last governorship election in the state.
A seven - man panel of the apex court led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad, in a split ruling of six - to- one, described the application by Ihedioha as an invitation to sit in an appeal over its judgment.
But Justice Chima Nweze, in disagreeing with the majority judgment, held that the Supreme Court had the power to overrule itself in a desirous situation.
He affirmed the Court of Appeal’s decision which upheld Ihedioha's victory, adding that the apex court in the January 14, 2020 judgment wrongly declared Uzodima winner of the last governorship election.
