One of the governorship aspirants in the December 2014 governorship primaries of the PDP, Mr. Friday Nwosu had filed a tax forgery suit against Ikpeazu. Nwosu had prayed the court to declare him the party’s rightful candidate and governor of the state.
All eyes will however be on the Federal High Court in Abuja as it delivers judgement on the application filed by the embattled Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu, seeking a stay of execution of the judgment of the court which removed him from office on June 27.
If Ikpeazu loses, it will be yet another political battle in favour of Mr. Uche Ogah who will be sworn in as the governor of Abia State.
The hearing will take place before Justice Okon Abang today.
