Supreme Court Begins Hearing Of Ihedioha Versus Uzodinma Case

The Supreme Court is hearing the application filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate, Mr. Emeka Ihedioha, over the January 14, 2020 judgment which sacked him as the Governor of Imo State.

Mr. Ihedioha and the PDP, in their applications, claim that the judgment of the apex court which installed Senator Hope Uzodinma as the Governor of Imo State was obtained by fraud.

They are therefore praying the seven-man panel of the apex court to review and set aside the judgment.

The panel, headed by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Tanko Muhammed, is currently hearing the application.

Lawyer to Mr. Ihedioha, Chief Kanu Agabi, in his argument, claims that fraud is evident in the judgment, as the appellant, Hope Uzodinma, claimed he was excluded from 388 polling units but tendered results from only 366 polling units

He adds that with the addition of votes from 388 polling units in favour of Senator Uzodinma exceeds the total number of accredited voters by 129,000 votes.

Countering the argument, Lawyer to Senator Hope Uzodinma says the application to revisit, review or set aside the judgment of the court is an incompetent one lacking in merit.

He argues further that the apex court lacks the jurisdiction to sit on appeal over any judgment delivered by the court except where cases of typographical errors or slips are noticed in the said judgment are established and in this case, no such errors have been established.

Mr Damian Dodo adds that the appellant approached the apex court in the face of compelling evidence that Senator Hope Uzodinma won the election, and therefore, has asked the court to dismiss the application.

Supreme Court has stood down Emeka Ihedioha’s application after listening to arguments from all the parties.

The apex court will deliver judgment by 3pm later today.

The Supreme court should cancel the election and order a new one,it is the correct thing to do at this point....The scam involved is evident!


  1. wishing you both all the very best.

  2. The Supreme court at this point should redeem its image by declaring Hon. Emeka Ihedioha winner of that election or call for a rerun in the said 388 pooling units even though I doubt the possibility of her doing so but that are the only two sensible options left at the moment.

    How do you explain a mathematical calculations were votes allocated to Hope Uzodinma when added to other votes is over the number of total accredited voters. Isn't that a monumental fraud??? Today, the dice has been cast to see if truly Nigeria can be redeemed.


    1. “My lords are human and can make mistake, but the law has given you power to correct yourselves so that your mistakes are not immortalized”, Agabi pleaded.


  3. The thought of it made my heart skip. I pray they do the needful. Let Ihedioha be restored or a rerun.

  4. At least they should order for a rerun.
    But I doubt they will do that, they will want to do 50:50, as per Bayelsa and Imo.

  5. The world is watching. Supreme court should better do the needful and cancel that election or return the sacked governor. That one is pure broad day light robbery
