Just in: Supreme Court dismisses Ihedioha’s application


The Supreme Court has just dismissed application filed Emeka Ihedioha asking it to review its 14 January judgement  which sacked him from office as Imo State Governor.

Nweze said he was satisfied that the judgement that declared Uzodinma winner was entered in error.
