The embattled former Governor of Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha has suffered yet another defeat as the Supreme Court, on Tuesday 3rd of March dismissed his application for review on the basis of lack of merit.

Ihedioha had approached the Supreme court for a review of the judgment that sacked his candidacy as the Governor of Imo State on January 14.


In submitting the application, Ihedioha had hoped the court would review the judgment and issue a reversal on the decision that deposed him as the Governor of Imo State.


Rather, in a ruling that brings an end to the controversy surrounding the sacking of Emeka Ihedioha as the governor of Imo State, the supreme court has dismissed his request for a review for lack of merit.

Recall that OYOGist.com reported the news of a judgment of the Supreme Court that sacked Emeka Ihedioha as the Governor of Imo State and ordered INEC to issue a certificate of return to APC’s Hope Uzodinma.


In a bid to have the court stay its judgment, Ihedioha and his party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) approached the Supreme Court hoping to have it reverse its judgment by filing an application for a review.

In a report filed by The Nation, the Supreme Court, upon examination of the arguments presented by PDP and Ihedioha’s lawyers dismissed the application for review of the ruling.

The supreme court ruled that the application for review lacked merit.
