Ikpeazu Remains Abia Governor- Abaribe

Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe on Monday reiterated the incontestable fact of Dr Okezea Victor Ikpeazu as the indisputable governor of Abia State irrespective of the ruling of the Federal High Court in Abuja.

The Senator who represents Abia South Senatorial District in the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, asked Abians particularly the people of Abia South not to panic but to remain calm and confident.

Abaribe in a terse statement in Abuja said he has confidence in the Judiciary adding that in the fullness of time justice for Ikpeazu would prevail as both the constitution and the electoral act do not make provisions for what was declared in the judgement.

“I am happy that our judicial system has given us a window of opportunity to exhaustively explore our legal right to its logical conclusion. In that case we are right on course to right the wrong in the court above. It is a process that has commenced already”, he said.

A Federal High Court had earlier on Monday ordered the governor to vacate his seat for giving fake information to his party during his nomination exercise in 2014.
