Following the Supreme Court Judgement yesterday, a photo of Emeka Ihedioha crying has emerged online.
We had reported that the Supreme Court declared Senator Hope Uzodimma as governor of Imo State.
The seven-member panel of justices today held that Emeka Ihedioha was not duly elected Governor.
At the resumed hearing of the appeals from Imo State on Tuesday, Nwosu’s counsel, Solomon Umoh (SAN), informed the apex court panel that he has advised his client to withdraw since the apex court had on December 20 disqualified him for laying claim to two political party nominations.
“My lordship, the issue has been addressed as to the validity of the APC candidate. It is not possible for APC to have two candidates,
”Umoh said. However, when Umoh indicated he would leave it to the discretion of the panel to decide whether Nwosu can still pursue his other appeal as the candidate of AA, the panel overruled him.
“Nothing can bring him here. That matter is gone. Your client has no locus standi to bring this appeal,” Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun said.
As a result, the CJN struck out Nwosu’s appeal including the cross-appeal against it brought by Governor Emeka Ihedioha through his counsel, Onyechi Ikpeazu (SAN).
