Justice Chima Nweze of the Supreme Court has disagreed with other six justices who dismissed a review brought before the apex court by Emeka Ihedioha today.

Recall that the Supreme Court in Abuja in a six-to-one judgment some minutes ago dismissed the application for review of its January 14, 2020, judgment which removed Emeka Ihedioha as Imo State Governor and declared Hope Uzodinma as the valid winner of the last governorship election in the state.

Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad, in a split ruling of six-to-one, described the application by Ihedioha ruling as an invitation to sit in an appeal over its judgment.

However, the only dissenting voice among the justices, Justice Nweze while disagreeing with the majority judgment, held that the Supreme Court had the power to overrule itself in a desirous situation.

He affirmed the Court of Appeal’s decision which upheld Ihedioha’s victory, adding that the apex court in the January 14, 2020 judgment wrongly declared Uzodima winner of the last governorship election.
