Seven months after the Peoples Democratic Party applied to the Supreme Court to give effect to its judgment delivered on December 20, 2019, disqualifying Uche Nwosu from the Imo governorship election on the ground of double nomination, the apex court has refused or neglected to list the application for hearing.

The apex court had in a judgment delivered on December 20, 2019 found that Nwosu was nominated by both Action Alliance (AA) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) and consequently nullified his nomination.

In another judgment delivered on January 14, 2020 in SC/462/2019, however, the apex court without making reference to its earlier judgment referred to above declared Hope Uzodinma the winner of the election on the platform of the same APC that had been found to nominate Nwosu.

As shown in the stamped copy of the application, it was duly received by the apex court on July 9, 2020.

Upon enquiry, the court could not give any response as to why it has refused to list the application for hearing.
