PDP moves to reinstate Gov Ikpeazu The Federal High Court has said it cannot review the pronouncement that Governor Ikpeazu should be sacked. Abang made this known in his ruling on monday when Wole Olanipekun counsel to the embattled Abia state, prayed the court to set aside its ruling which sacked the governor last Monday. However, Abang said there would be a ruling on the application for stay of execution and an order asking the electoral body, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue a certificate of return to Uche Ogah on Thursday, July 7. The embattled governor of Abia state, Ikpeazu had in an application urged the court for a stay of execution on Abang’s ruling on Monday, June 27, which mandated him to vacate the governorship seat for Ogah. Also, Ogah’s counsel, Alex Iziyon accused Ikpeazu of employing self help tactics by approaching another High in Abia state to get an exparte order restraining the chief justice of the state from swearing in the new governor elect. “The question that arises now bothers on sanctity and sanity of this court order, now asking for a date to respond when they have in their pocket an order which has chained the plaintiff from presenting himself for swearing in, contrary to the order of this court,” Iziyon said
