, Nigeria.
A Federal High Court in Owerri has dismissed a suit seeking to halt the inauguration of the Imo State Governor-elect, Emeka Ihedioha on May 29.

While delivering judgement, Justice PA Rimgim said the plaintiff, Clifford Eze had no right to approach a regular court for a post-election matter.

Justice PA Rimgim, who awarded a N5m cost against the plaintiff, stated that he lacked the jurisdiction to hear the suit.

Speaking to Punch after the ruling, Ihedioha said it was a victory for the people of the state.

Ihedioha who spoke through his media aide, Chibuike Onyeukwu, said that he was ready to work with everybody including the plaintiffs and members of the opposition parties to take the state to the next level.
