Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court in Abuja has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission of Nigeria (INEC) to cede the certificate of return to the opponent of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State as he was never qualified to run for the party primaries in the People’s Democratic party as a guber candidate.

The judge also ordered the Chief Judge of the state to swear in Uche Ogah, his opponent in the December 2014 gubernatorial election in state as the substantive governor of Abia State.

The judge ruled that on the account of fake tax returns during the primaries, Dr. Ikpeazu was never qualified to run in the primaries. (Sahara Reporters)
