Certificate of Return to Ogah: CNPP Praises INEC, Buhari

The Conference of Nigeria Political Parties (CNPP) has commended the

Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for promptly issuing

Certificate of Return to Dr. Uche Ogah as the Abia State Governor in line

with the ruling of a Federal High Court in Abuja, which sacked Mr. Okezie

Ikpeazu as the state Governor.
The CNPP observed that the development was a positive indicator that

Nigerian democracy is advancing, adding that the action of the electoral

umpire was also a pointer to the level of non-interference in the electoral

and judicial processes in the country by the Muhammadu Buhari

administration.
The conference in a statement issued in Abuja on Thursday by its National

Chairman, Alhaji Balarabe Musa and the Secretary General, Chief Willy

Ezugwu noted that “what has happened in Abia State shows that the era of

impunity is behind us.
“There is hope in our democratic future as a county as any country where

impunity is the norm never survives.
“President Muhammadu Buhari administration and the Independent National

Electoral Commission (INEC) must be commended for this singular

demonstration of courage to do what is right in line with the court

judgment that ordered the issuance of the Certificate of return to Dr. Uche

Ogah who came second in the Abia State Peoples Democratic Party

governorship primary.
“The prompt action taken by INEC to obey the judgment of the Abuja Federal

High court that nullified the candidature of Ikpeazu as the Abia State

Governor has shown that democracy is working in Nigeria”, the statement

read.
