Uche Nwosu Withdraws Case Against Ihedioha’s Election At Supreme Court by AuthenticNG: 3:02pm On Jan 14


The Action Alliance’s governorship candidate in the March 9, 2019 governorship election in Imo State, Uche Nwosu, on Tuesday, withdrew the appeal he filed against the election of Governor Emeka Ihedioha.

Nwosu is a son-in-law to the immediate-past governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, who was elected to the Senate on the platform of the All Progressives Congress in the 2019 general election in the state.

On Tuesday, Nwosu’s lawyer, Mr. Solomon Umoh (SAN), told the seven-man panel of the Supreme Court led by Justice Tanko Muhammad, that the decision to withdraw the appeal challenging the outcome of the last governorship election in Imo State was based on the judgment of the apex court delivered on December 20, 2019.

The referenced judgment of the Supreme Court was on a case marked SC. 1384/2019, which had declared that Nwosu was not validly nominated as a candidate of the AA to participate in the March 9, 2019 governorship poll, thus lacked the locus standi to file any case in connection with the election.

Announcing the decision to withdraw the appeal on Tuesday, Umoh said, “Based on the judgment of this court in appeal SC. 1384/2019 delivered on December 20, 2019, and subsequently, on my advice to my client, we have decided to withdraw this appeal.”

Responding, counsel for respondents to the appeal, including Governor Emeka Ihedioha, who won the election on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, urged the court to dismiss the appeal having been withdrawn.

Ruling, the seven-man panel unanimously dismissed the appeal.

In the end, democracy is not in the hands of the people, it is in the hands of the lawyers.

After the selection, comes the election and then lawyer sit and reach a decision.

It is well. Some people might have been killed for supporting this one. Only for him to pull out here. He never wanted to serve his people in the first place, I think.

Who ultimately wins in Imo? Like for Ihedioha, share for Uzodinma or Araraume. The die is cast.

meanwhile one fake prophet was somewhere prophesying chaos and blind outcome, to his members. Dripping water on their dehydrated ego to generate money for his gaping pockets.

I spit on Africa's religious lords and fathers, hungry, greedy and bigoted lots.

BTW the NaijaOlosho that booked space above me, please tell how much do u charge for the weekend. my rooster has been on the rise for four days.

THANKIU

No worry yourself.. Father Mbaka will come up with an explanation and his followers will believe.

He may come and say something like his prophesy is for 2027.. something something sha.. they can always say something to justify why their predictions failed

A certain Reverend Father said Gov. Ihedioha will be ousted & replaced with Hope Uzodinma of the APC. Today's judgement will either make or Mar his reputation as a supposed man of God.
