Imo Guber: Supreme court postpones ruling to March 3


The Supreme Court of Nigeria has adjourned until Tuesday, March 3, 2020 for ruling on the review of Imo State governorship case.

The apex court had on January 14, 2020, declared Senator Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress winner of the governorship election in Imo, bringing the reign of Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party to an abrupt end.

Counsel to Ihedioha, Kanu Agabi, asked the court on Monday for one day adjournment to enable him look into the process that had just been served.
