The Supreme Court on Tuesday adjourned the hearing of former Imo State governor Emeka Ihedioha to March 2, 2020.

Ihedioha had approached the apex court with an application to reverse itself on the judgement sacking him from office as governor of the state.

The Supreme Court had fixed Tuesday, February 18, 2020 to hear the appeal filed by Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), a month after it sacked him and declared the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Hope Uzodinma, as the duly elected governor of the State.

At the hearing on Tuesday, lawyer to Mr Ihedioha, Mr Kanu Agabi, filed an application stating that he needs a little time to file some processes before the Court.
