“Remain calm, law abiding, I’m still your governor,” Ikpeazu tells Abians

In a statement today, the embattled governor said: “I have received with concern, report of the purported issuance of Certificate of Return to Mr. Uche Ogah by INEC, as governor of Abia State, despite dependency of a notice of appeal and motion for stay of the orders made by Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja. 

Our laws are clear on this matter. No one may be issued with a certificate of return let alone be sworn in as governor, when there is a subsisting appeal and application for stay. I want to appeal to Abians to remain calm and law abiding in the face of this provocation, unless and until the appellant courts have conclusively resolved the appeal, the status remains, I am still the Governor of Abia State.”
