Philip Umeadi vs Gov Hope Uzodinma: Has Governor Hope Uzodinma Come to The End of The Road? (Part 2)

This article is a sequel to the one I published on January 11, 2021 with the title "Phillip Umeadi vs. Gov. Hope Uzodinma: Has Governor Hope Uzodinma Come to The End of The Road?", in line with the latest development on the Chief Phillip Umeadi's suit, I have deemed it necessary to publish a part 2 of the article. This is due to the need of many people to follow up the case and see how it will be handled by the Nigerian Supreme Court.

As at the time when the Supreme Court declared Senator Hope Uzodinma winner of the March 2019 Imo state governorship election, there was a form of unity between the Governor, Rochas Okorocha, and Uche Nwosu, who, according to the Apex Court, is the validly nominated candidate of the APC. However, Governor Uzodinma has since fallen out with Senator Rochas Okorocha, and, by implication, Uche Nwosu, who is a son-in-law to Rochas.

As one of the respondents of Chief Phillip Umeadi's suit, we may begin to wonder if Uche Nwosu could be out to remind the Apex Court that he was the duly nominated candidate of the APC, and further expose that the Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma is not the candidate of the APC in line with the December 19, 2020, judgement.

The political landscape in Imo has changed since the emergence of Senator Hope Uzodinma as the Executive Governor of the state. His fallout with Rochas, one of the people believed to have made his Supreme Court victory possible, could be a big minus to the Governor's camp.

With the points raised by Chief Phillip Umeadi (SAN), and the strained relationship between Governor Hope Uzodinma and Senator Rochas Okorocha, we may begin to wonder if the Governor has finally come to the end of the road. As the suit is set to be scheduled, we may not have to wait for long before we get to find out if the Governor has some points to prove to the Supreme Court.
