Imo: Court hears suit seeking Uzodinma’s sack

The Federal High Court, Abuja, has heard argument on a suit filed by the Reform and Advancement Party (RAP) and its candidate, Okere Kingdom, seeking the sack of the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma.

On Wednesday, Kingdom told the court that he filed an application for abridged time within which the defendants would file their responses, NAN reports.

The defendants have 30 days to respond but the plaintiff told the court that he made the application for the court to abridge the time due to the urgency of the matter.

The applicant, also a lawyer, maintained that the matter was of constitutional importance.

He argued that Uzodinma was occupying the seat of Imo governor illegally, having not participated in the 2019 election as a candidate of any political party.

Defendants objected to the application on the grounds that they needed the time given by the constitution to respond.
