Justice Othman Musa of Bwari High Court, FCT Abuja has adjourned indefinitely the case seeking to stop Senator Hope Uzodinma as the Governorship candidate of All Progressives Congress for Imo State in the 2019 elections.
This development was sequel to the resumed hearing of the consolidated suits over the Governorship candidacy of APC in Imo State at High Court 13 Bwari FCT.
An eyewitness disclosed that Justice Othman Musa gave a bench ruling adjourning the matter indefinetly on strength of a petition against him by one Bisike Chinaka claiming to be State Deputy Chairman of the ruling APC in Imo State.
The petitioner identified as Bisike Chinaka, a nephew to Govermor Okorocha’s son-in-son, Uche Nwosu was said to have been directed to file petition against the Judge handling the matter over their claimed lack of confidence in the matter.
It could be recalled that Senator Hope Uzodinma had earlier obtained a court injunction retraining both APC and INEC from further conduct of primary having emerged as Governorship candidate of the party during the October 1st primary election conducted by Alhaji Almed Gulak.
Investigation revealed that all efforts for Governor Rochas Okorocha and his son-in-law, Chief Nwosu to vacate the said order earlier obtained by Senator Uzodinma to pave way for his recognition as Governorship candidate relying on the purported October 6th primary election by a faction of the party in Imo State proved abortive, pointing out that due to their inability to vacate the said order, Senator Uzodinma remains the authentic Governorship candidate of APC in Imo State for 2019 election.
Meanwhile, Justice Musa while referring the petition to the Chief Judge of the FCT for further action, wondered why a non party in the suit or agent of any of the parties before the court could file a petition in a matter that does not concern him, describing the petition as an academic miscalculation that holds no ground.
