While the 2018 sacked chairmen and councilors are still wallowing in pains over series of attempts to return to the Local Governments after their suspension which started during the short term of the Ihedioha led Government to the Uzodinma led administration, the Court of Appeal Owerri Division had last Thursday January 19, gave a long adjournment to May 22 2021.
This is even as the official tenure of the embattled chairmen and councilors would expire August same 2021.
2018 elected chairmen and councilors had dragged the short lived Ihedioha led Government to the High Court, where they prayed amongst others, for the Court to reinstate them after their illegal suspension by the said Government.
While the suit was still pending in the Court, Ihedioha was removed as the Governor of Imo state by the Supreme Court and in his place, Uzodinma took over hence the continuation of the said suit.
Our Reporter who monitored the court process on the said date reported that majority of the sacked chairmen and councilors present at the court were frustrated when the presiding Judge adjourned the matter to May 22, which is three months to the end of their tenure which is August this year.
Speaking to LEAD NEWSPAPERS, one of the sacked chairmen who would not want his name in print revealed that that the best option for the sacked chairmen and councilors was to abandon the ongoing suit at the Court of Appeal while accusing the court of working in interest of the state Government.
He further pointed out that if the court was not already biased, under no circumstance that a matter of that nature would be adjourned to a long time for a continuation of hearing not even a judgment, he said.
