The Federal High Court 2, sitting in Owerri this morning struck out the suit brought by agents of Uche Nwosu the candidate of the Action Alliance (AA) and the party, seeking to restrain INEC from issuing Hon. Emeka Ihedioha his Certificate of Return, having been declared winner of tge Governorship election held on March 9, 2019.
One of the grounds of the suit was that Ihedioha did not meet the required 25% in 18 LGAs of Imo State to be declared winner by INEC.
The court therefore stated clearly that “post-election matters belong to election tribunals”. This is a settled case by our laws and Nigerian Case Laws.
Agents of Action Alliance AA acting in the interest of the AA governorship candidate, Uche Nwosu, had last week stealthily filed an Originating Summons with an Exparte Motion seeking to restraining INEC from Issuing the Imo Governor-elect with a Certificate of Return. That move has now fallen flat.
