Supreme Court dismisses Ihedioha’s suit against Uzodimma

The Supreme Court has dismissed an application by Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) seeking to be issued a certificate of return as the rightful governor of Imo state.

In a ruling read by Justice Tijjani Abubakar on Tuesday, December 5, the apex court held that Ihedioha’s application lacked merit and was unnecessary and vexatious.

The court also awarded N40 million in costs against Ihedioha’s lawyer, Mike Ozekhome, for bringing the matter before the court.

The ruling effectively upholds the Supreme Court judgement of January 14, 2020, which nullified Ihedioha’s election and declared Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the governor of Imo state.
