Abia Governorship: INEC Issues Certificate Of Return To Uche Ogah

The Independent National Electoral Commission (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.

A court in Abuja, on Monday asked INEC to cede the Certificate of Return issued to Mr Okezie Ikpeazu, to his opponent.

Giving his ruling, Justice Okon Abang, said that on the account of fake tax returns during the primaries, Dr. Ikpeazu was never qualified to run in the PDP primaries as a governorship candidate.

The judge also ordered the Chief Judge of the state to swear in Uche Ogah, his opponent in the December 2014 governorship election in state as the substantive Governor of Abia State.
