Uche Ogah, an aspirant in the Abia governorship race, has congratulated Governor Okezie Ikpeazu on his Supreme Court victory.

Ogah had earlier alleged that the Abia state Governor falsified his tax certificates which he presented to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

According to Leadership, Ogah said “The Supreme Court unequivocally reaffirmed your nomination and election as the authentic governor of our beloved state, Abia.

“I have always been a law abiding citizen and will continue to be. My challenge of your nomination was borne out of a genuine desire for clarity and to see that things are put in its right perspective and today our apex court the final arbiter have spoken.

“As the legal battle comes to an end with the Supreme Court 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.

“My interest in politics is not for fame or personal aggrandisement but to impart positively on the lives of the common man and to make our dear state, Abia the envy of other states.”
