Remain calm and law abiding, am still your Governor
I have received with concern, report of the purported issuance of
Certificate of Return to Mr. Uche Ogah by the Independent National
Electoral Commission (INEC), as governor of Abia State, despite dependency
of a notice of appeal and motion for stay of the orders made by Justice
Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja.
Our laws are clear on this matter. No one may be issued with a certificate
of return let alone be sworn in as governor, when there is a subsisting
appeal and application for stay.
I want to appeal to Abians to remain calm and law abiding in the face of
this provocation, unless and until the appellant courts have conclusively
resolve the appeal, the status remains, I am still the Governor of Abia
