Abia State residents today, February 4, trooped out en masse welcome the state Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, who flew in from Abuja following his victory at the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court yesterday ruled that Ikpeazu is the authentic winner of the 2015 governorship election in the state, setting aside an appeal court verdict, which nullified the Governor's election.

On December 31, 2015, a Court of Appeal sitting in Abia had ordered Ikpeazu of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) to vacate his seat and ordered the  Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to swear in Alex otti of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) as the state governor.
