Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), have asked the Supreme Court to disregard the request by the sacked candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Emeka Ihedioha for a review of its January 14, 2020, judgment.

The Supreme Court had, in judgement sacked Ihedioha and ordered that Uzodinma takes his place, a decision the former has applied to the apex court for a review, alleging that it was obtained by fraud.

In their joint response, Uzodinma and the APC are of the view that the request by Ihedioha and the PDP, amounts to a mere academic exercise and an affront to the nation’s Constitution.

Uzodinma and the APC argued, in their a 19-paragraph counter-affidavit, deposed to by Mathew Joseph Mola, that it was late in the day for  Ihedioha and his party to request the court to revisit their case at the expiration of the 60 days allowed by the Constitution for the Supreme Court to hear and determine post-election cases.
