CJN Ibrahim Tanko: All eyes are on the Supreme Court
Nigerians will have to wait till March to know the position of the Supreme Court in the application filed by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and former Imo state Governor, Emeka Ihedioha, as the apex court Tuesday adjourned hearing in the case till March 2 this year.
The PDP and Ihedioha are by the application, praying the court to, among others, reverse its judgment on January 14 this year, which sacked Ihedioha and replaced him with Senator Hope Uzodinma, of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
At the mention of the case on Tuesday, Ihedioha’s lead lawyer, Kanu Agabi, sought for time to enable parties file the necessary papers, a request other lawyers in the case did not object to.
A seven-man panel of the Supreme Court, led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Ibrahim Muhammad, in a brief ruling, granted the request for adjournment and adjourned till March 2, 2020.
