Recall that on June 27, the Federal High Court in Abuja sacked the governor for allegedly submitting false information to his party, the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, for the party’s governorship primary in December 2014.

Justice Okon Abang ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to immediately issue a certificate of return to the plaintiff, Uche Ogah, who polled the second highest number of votes in the primary election.
