BREAKING: High Court orders Governor Ikpeazu to vacate office

A Federal High Court sitting in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja on Monday ordered the Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu, to vacate office immediately.

This order follows allegation that he submitted false information to his party, the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, for the party’s governorship primary in December 2014.

In his ruling, Justice Okon Abang ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to immediately issue a certificate of return to the complainant, Uche Ogah.

Recall that Ogah polled the second highest number of votes in the primary election.
