Virtually abandoned Philip Umeadi’s suit against Governor Hope Uzodinma wherein he is praying the Supreme Court of Nigeria to interpret its judgment on December 20, 2019 which disqualified Uche Nwosu as the candidate of the APC by virtue of double nomination by both the APC and AA appears to have resurfaced.
Uche Nwosu in a fresh suit with Philip Umeadi Jnr is asking court to declare Ihedioha winner who according to him was the next person that got the highest number of votes in the April 9th Governorship election in Imo.
Recall that Philip Umeadi had on his own instituted suit against the Governor of Imo State, Senator Hope Uzodinma where he prayed the Supreme Court to interpret its December 2019 judgment where it ruled amongst others that Uche Nwosu was nominated by both the APC and the AA, and as such stands disqualified by virtue of section 37 of 2010 electoral act as amended.
While the Supreme court is yet to hear the pending suit, which has lasted for over one year, Uche Nwosu now approached same court now using same Philip Umeadi as a counsel to remove Uzodinma as the Governor of Imo State.
Although Uche Nwosu had at the time of this report not informed any personal reasons behind his sudden decision to drag Uzodinma to court on a matter which was believed he had given up to, by accompanying Uzodinma to Owerri amongst other leaders on the day of inauguration, but unconfimed sources revealed to Lead that his decision may not be far from the attitude of Uzodinma towards his father in-law, Rochas Okorocha in the recent times.
Few days ago, the Government of Imo State led by Uzodinma converted the Eastern Palm University, allegedly built by Okorocha with the state resources into the state University
In addition to that, the Royal Spring Palm Apartment belonging to Okorocha was seized by the State Government amongst others.
