Facts about the pending motion on notice to enforce the judgement of December 20th, 2019 Supreme Court ruling that disqualified Ugwumba Uche Nwosu are follows:
No date has been fixed for the hearing of the matter.
The 11th January 2020 date is a hoax
PDP is actually the respondent applicants and not Philip Umeadi as being rumored in the media.
Philip Umeadi is one of the 6 lawyers for the applicant (PDP)
The case is a statutory matter that seeks to clarify the pre-election and post-election ambiguity thrown up by the conflicting rulings of the Nigerian Supreme Court on IMO state election of March 9th, 2019.
On the 20th December, 2019, the Supreme Court ruled unanimously that Uche Nwosu was the candidate of AA and APC going into the 2019 IMO gubernatorial election. Uche Nwosu was disqualified as a candidate in line with the statue. That disqualification has since been executed by both the Supreme Court and Uche Nwosu through a motion that was brought before the Supreme Court by Uche Nwosu on the 14 January 2020.
On the 14th of January, the same Supreme Court unanimously ruled that Hope Uzodinma was the winner of the March 2019 IMO election after coming a distant fourth position as declared by INEC.
If as ruled by the Supreme Court on December 20th, 2019 that Uche Nwosu was the candidate of APC in the IMO 2019 gubernatorial election, under what political platform did Hope Uzodimma contest election?
So the pending motion before the Supreme Court, brought by the PDP/ Philip Umeadi seeks to execute the second part of the ruling since PDP/ Emeka Ihedioha are the beneficiaries of that ruling.
It is trite law that a beneficiary of any court ruling, who is a party in that suit, should by way of motion apply to be credited. And the court is duty bound to complete the process where the rule of law is the order of the day.
Our judicial officers at the Supreme Court SHOULD NOT ALLOW EVIL TO PREVAIL since the position they occupy is from God.
