Festus Akande, spokesman of the supreme court, confirmed this to TheCable when he was contacted on Saturday.

“Yes it is true. The review will be held on Tuesday,” he said over the phone.

Ihedioha had asked the apex court to review the judgement which led to his removal as governor.

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.
