The indigenes of Abia State residing in Lagos have hailed the judgement of the Court of Appeal in Abuja ,which totally condemned the ruling of Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court Abuja that ordered the removal of Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu as the governor of the state.
A statement made available and signed by the leader of the group, Mr. Charles Nwogbe, noted that, “it has again been proven that the judgment of Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court sitting Abuja was biased.”
According to him, “The five justices of the Appeal Court held that Justice Abang went beyond his remit as a judge, was biased and turned the law upside down.”
The group, which came out in a large number to celebrate the recent Appeal Court victory of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, also said that he was the best thing that had happened to Abia State, saying that those who were against him were only wasting their time.
“Ikpeazu has been anointed by God to rule and lead Abia to the promise land, which he has started doing. I appeal to people distracting Ikpeazu to allowing work for the people.”
Nwogbefurther stated that while some governors were still battling to deliver their campaign promises to their citizen, Governor Ikpeazu marked his first 100 days in office in a unique way by embarking on an inspection tour of projects he has commenced including the ones he inherited from his predecessor.
Between September 21 and 23, 2015, Nwogbe said the governor traversed the length and breadth of the three senatorial districts of the state to inspect laudable projects in the state.
