The Supreme Court will this week hear 21 appeals arising from the disputes over the March 18, 2023, governorship elections. Four appeals—two pertaining to Abia and two involving Adamawa State—are scheduled for consideration by the court on Wednesday.

Ikechi Emenike of the All Progressives Congress’ (APC) suit over the Abia State governorship election will determine Alex Otti’s fate. PDP candidate Okechukwu Ahiwe’s hearing is also scheduled. Hearings are also scheduled for Wednesday for the two appeals filed by the SDP candidate about Adamawa State governorship election and the counter-appeal filed by the PDP (the governor).

In its schedule for the week, the apex court is scheduled to hear cases in Ebonyi, Plateau, Delta, Adamawa, Abia, Ogun, Cross River, and Akwa Ibom states between today and Thursday.

The apex court is set to issue judgments in the post-election governorship appeals in Kano, Lagos, and other states on Friday.

The Supreme Court will hear six appeals tomorrow, Tuesday. Three of the appeals pertain to Plateau State and were filed by the PDP, its candidate, Caleb Muftwang, and INEC; the remaining three are related to Delta State and were filed by Kenneth Gbagi of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Ovie Augustine Omo-Agege of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and Peta Kennedy of his Labour Party (LP).

The court will hear six appeals on Thursday: two concerning Ogun State, filed by PDP’s Oladipo Adebutu and a counter appeal by the governor’s party, APC’s Adedapo Abiodun; one concerning Cross River, filed by PDP’s Prof. Sandy Onor; and two concerning Akwa Ibom State, filed by YPP’s Akpan Udofia and NPP’s John Akpan Udoedehe.
