Recall that on Monday this week, a Federal High Court in Abuja ordered Governor Okezie Ikpeazu to vacate office and shortly after that, the Governor told the people of Abia to relax as he was still in power ‘legally’ and would appeal the judgement.
Fast forward to Thursday, his counterpart, Uche Ogah who came 2nd in the PDP primaries has now been handed a certificate of return by INEC as ordered by the judge which automatically makes him the new Governor.
It would be recalled that Ogah had dragged the Governor to court, on the account of fake tax returns during their party’s primaries, saying Mr Ikpeazu, was never qualified to run in the PDP primaries as a governorship candidate.
So what is next now? Will Governor Ikpeazu go home?
