The suit challenging the emergence of Emeka Ihedioha as the governor of Imo State has been stood down by the Supreme Court.
The matter was stood down by the apex court after Tuesday’s hearing of the appeal instituted by the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) governorship candidate in the election, Senator Ifeanyi Ararume.
After the seven-man panel led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad, heard the appeal on Tuesday, the CJN said its judgment would be delivered later in the day.
Aside from the appeal by Ararume, there are also appeals by the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Hope Uzodinma; against Ihedioha’s victory.
Recall that we already reported the withdrawal of Okorocha inlaw Uche Nwosu from the appeal through his legal representatives
