Abia crisis: Gov. Ikpeazu dares INEC, insists 'I'm still in charge'


Abia State governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu on Thursday dared the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on the issuance of Certificate of Return (CoR) to Mr. Uche Ogah, despite a notice of appeal and motion for stay of the orders made by Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja.

The governor in a press statement personally signed by him and made available to ITRealms, told his supporters and Abians to remain calm because he remained the governor. 

"I have received with concern report of the purported issuance of Certificate of Return to Mr. Uche Ogah by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), as governor of Abia State, despite dependency of a notice of appeal and motion for stay of the orders made by Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja.

"Our laws are clear on this matter. No one may be issued with a certificate of return let alone be sworn in as governor, when there is a subsisting appeal and application for stay.

"I want to appeal to Abians to remain calm and law abiding in the face of this provocation, unless and until the appellant courts have conclusively resolve the appeal, the status remains, I am still the Governor of Abia State" Dr Okezie Ikpeazu said.
