Abia state Governorship Tussle Uche Emaka Ogah recieves cerificate of return from INEC

Following the order by justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court in Abuja removing the Abia state governor from office, Independent National Electoral Commission of Nigeria  has presented the certificate of return to the opponent of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia state Uche Emeka Ogah who was the runner up in the primaries as the rightful candidate of PDP in the last general elections. The judge said ikpeazu was never qualified to run for the party primaries in the People’s Democratic party as a guber candidate.

The judge had ordered the Chief Judge of the state to swear in, Uche Ogah, his opponent in the Decmeber 2014 gubernatorial election in state as the substantive governor of Abia state. the judge ruled that on the account of fake tax returns during the primaries, Dr. Ikpeazu was never qualified to run in the primaries. The governor has insisted that he is still the substantive elected governor since he has appealed the ruling. The coming days will provide a clearer picture of the political intrigues in the state and how it will play out.
