Following the judgement of Justice Okon Abange of federal high court Abuja on Monday,Uche Sampson Ogah is the new governor of Abia State. The sacked incumbent governor Okezie Ikpeazu.
From his profile, Uche Ogah is a Nigerian oil magnate, entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist. He is the President of Master Energy Group, a conglomerate with over 15 subsidiaries and interests across a variety of industries.
In 2014, Dr. Ogah came second in the PDP primaries with 103 votes but he rejected the outcome, alleging that the exercise was fraught with fraud.
Ogah said there was no credible and proper accreditation of the delegates who participated in the primary, giving way to admission of non-delegates to vote in the exercise.
“I know there was no formal accreditation and people were given tags just to go and vote. Everything in Abia is fraud. Why? Everything, from beginning to the end,” he had cried out.
Will he eventually make it to government house as Abia governor? Time will tell.
