A Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered the Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu, to vacate office immediately for submitting false information to his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, for the party’s governorship primary in December 2014.

Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court in Abuja asked the Independent National Electoral Commission of Nigeria to cede the certificate of return to his opponent Uche Ogah, who polled the second highest number of votes in the primary.

The judge also ordered the Chief Judge of the state to swear in, Uche Ogah,  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.
