Abia State residents today came out to rally in solidarity with their embattled Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu. This is coming after Justice Okon Abang of a Federal High Court in Abuja, ordered the Governor to vacate his office after finding him guilty of submitting false information to his party – PDP during the party’s governorship primary in December 2014.
Responding to the crowd of Abians who besieged the government house in Umuahia, the Governor, represented by his Deputy, Ude Oko Chukwu, said he will employ all judiciary processes to regain his mandate and expressed confidence that the judiciary will do the right thing. He thanked the people for conducting themselves well without disrupting peace and informed them that he has appealed the judgement.
