The supreme court says it will on Tuesday hear the application filed by Emeka Ihedioha, a former governor of Imo state.
Spokesman of the supreme court, Festus Akande confirmed in a statement on Saturday.
According to the statement, Ihedioha asked the apex court to review the judgement which led to his removal as governor of Imo.
In January, the apex court declared Hope Uzodinma, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the duly elected governor of the state on the grounds that results from 388 polling units were excluded when the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced the final tally in March 2019.
The court upheld the prayers of the APC candidate and affirmed him as the duly elected governor.
