Legal attempts by the Reform and Advancement Party, RAP, to oust Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State, at the Federal High Court, Abuja has been aided by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, which has joined in the matter.
When the matter came up before Justice Okon Abang on July 20, 2020, he adjourned it to September 29, 2020.
The adjournment marks a long wait for the RAP and the PDP, whose governorship candidates, Okere Kingdom and Emeka Ihedioha, seems to be on the same page in the battle to reclaim Government House, Owerri, from the APC led government of Senator Hope Uzodinma.
RAP had approached the court to seek judicial interpretation to ascertain if the All Progressive Congress, APC, sponsored Senator Hope Uzodinma as its governorship candidate in the 2019 governorship election in Imo State.
Recall that when the matter came before Justice Abang, he directed that hearing notices be served on the PDP since the party was not represented in court.
