Imo: Court delivers judgment March 2

The Supreme Court has fixed March 2 for judgment in an appeal by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against the electoral victory of Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha.

The apex court fixed the date after parties adopted their brief of argument yesterday before Justice Walter Onnoghen-led five member panel.

Okorocha won the election on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

But the PDP candidate and former governor Ikedi Ohakim is not a party to the suit.

The appellant counsel, Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN) urged the court to set aside the judgment of the Appeal Court, which affirmed the decision of the Governorship Election Petition that declared Okorocha as  governor.

According to him, Ohakim won the lawful majority vote.

But counsel to Okorocha, Chief Adeniyi Akintola (SAN)

urged the court to discountenance him.
