Ogah congratulates Ikpeazu, accepts Supreme Court ruling

by Azeez Adeniyi

Former Abia governorship aspirant, Uchechukwu Ogah has congratulated the governor of the state, Okezie Ikpeazu whose election he challenged at the Supreme Court.

The apex court had dismissed his suit and upheld Ikpeazu’s election.

The court also dismissed Ogah’s case which he won at the Federal High Court, Abuja, but lost at the Court of Appeal.

In a statement on Saturday, Ogah said he had accepted the court’s verdict.


He urged the people of the state to support the governor.

The statement read, “On the 12th of May 2017, the Supreme Court of Nigeria gave their final verdict over my case with Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, the governor of Abia State. Even though a painful verdict, but as someone that believes in the rule of law and the judiciary, I have accepted the decision of the apex court in good faith.

“As the legal battle comes to an end with the Supreme Court’s declaration, I’m exceedingly happy today that in the course of this struggle, I never resorted to self-help nor encouraged my supporters to indulge in any form of violence either in my State or elsewhere.

“May I especially thank my teeming supporters for standing by me all through this  journey and may I  also use this golden opportunity to congratulate His Excellency,  Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, governor of Abia State and urge all Abians to join hands in supporting the Governor in order to move our dear state forward.”
