Abia: Gov Ikpeazu Heads To Supreme Court

Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu has filed a suit at the Supreme Court challenging the Court of Appeal ruling that nullified his victory in the last governorship election in the State.

The lead Counsel for the governor, Mr. Chibuike Nwokeukwu, disclosed this at a media briefing on Monday after a meeting of elders of Ukwa and Ngwa political bloc at Osisioma Aba.

He said the Appeal Court judgment was a rape of justice, which required further subjection to legal test at the Supreme Court.

Nwokeukwu urged Abia people to disregard the rumour making the rounds that the Court of Appeal had asked that Dr. Alex Otti of APGA be sworn in on Tuesday, stressing that Ikpeazu remains the state governor until proved otherwise by the apex court.
