It is no longer news that the suit filed by Chief Phillip Umeadi, demanding that the Supreme Court should enforce its ruling on the candidacy of APC for the March 2019 Imo State Governorship election, has been scheduled for heating on Monday January 11, 2021. It can be recalled that the Supreme Court had in its judgement over the candidacy of the APC, declared Uche Nwosu the duly nominated candidate of the APC for the March 2019 Imo State Governorship election. However, on January 14, 2020, the same Supreme Court ruled that Governor Hope Uzodinma won the same election under the platform of the APC.
With this, the suit which is demanding that the Court enforce its ruling on the candidacy of the APC, can be argued to have the potential to bring to an end, the reign of Hope Uzodinma as the Governor of Imo State. With this in mind, the Governor's camp could be under tension as no one can tell for sure, what the decision of the court could be.
Should the court decide to stand by its judgement which nullified Hope Uzodinma's nomination as APC's candidate for the election, then the Governor may be asked to leave the office. This could be the greatest fear of Governor Hope Uzodinma's Camp at this point in time as the camp cannot say for sure, if the judgement of the court would go in their favour or not.
