Abia Governorship: No Decision Yet As Court Adjourns Hearing Till 7th July
Posted On Jul 4, 2016
Abia State Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, will remain in office as governor of the state, pending the conclusion of matters in courts.
This was the decision of Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court Abuja, who adjourned hearing to Thursday on the application for Stay of execution by Governor Ikpeazu against Abang’s ruling in favour of Uche Ogah.
Justice Abang also said that the enrollment order he gave to uche Ogah was not an enforceable order.
He thereafter adjourned hearing till Thursday, 7th July, on Ogah’s application seeking to vacate the order by Justice Chibuzo Ahuchaogu of Abia State High Court, that restrained the Chief Judge of Abia State from swearing him in.
In a related development, a Federal high court sitting in Owerri, has reserved ruling for Friday 8th of July in a suit filed by Mr. Friday Nwosu against the eligibility of Abia state governor, Okezie Ikpeazu.
