Residents of Abia state are currently jubilating after the supreme court upheld the election of Okezie Ikpeazu as the state governor.

Uchechukwu Ogah, had earlier obtained a judgment of the Federal High Court in Abuja to replace Ikpeazu.

But the CJN, Justice Walter Onnoghen, who led a five-man panel of judges held that Samson Ogah, does not have a case as the appeal lacked merit.

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Enyinnaya Appolos, Governor Ikpeazu stated that the victory is a re-affirmation of the mandate given to him by the people, and now twice confirmed by the Supreme Court.
