The judgment delivered on January 14, sacking Emeka Ihedioha of the People’s Democratic Party as governor of Imo State and replacing him with Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress has generated a lot of controversies.

Other members of the panel are Justice Nwali Sylvester Ngwuta , Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, Justice Amiru Sanusi, Justice Amina Adamu Augie, Justice Uwani Musa Abba Aji and Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun.
