Abia Governorship: INEC Issues Certificate Of Return To Uche Ogah
INEC has issued the certificate of return to Mr Uche Ogah as the Governor of Abia State.
INEC’S Director of Publicity, Oluwole Osaze-Uzi says this follows an order by the Abuja Federal High Court mandating INEC to immediately issue Certificate of Return to Mr. Uche Ogah who came second at the last Peoples Democratic Party, PDP primaries in Abia State.
With this development, it is unclear if Okezie Ikpeazu will vacate the seat as the governor of the state.
A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has Monday annulled the election of Governor and ordered INEC to issue a certificate of return to Dr. Samson Oga.
The court also ordered Ikpeazu to vacate office immediately.
But the governor in his response to the court judgement maintains that he remains the Governor of the state according to law and will await the final determination of the matter by the appellate courts.
