Meet 46-Year-Old Uche Ogah, Abia Newly Declared Governor (Photos)



A Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered the Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu, to vacate office immediately for submitting false information to his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, for the party’s governorship primary in December 2014.
Justice Okon Abang in a judgment on Monday ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to immediately issue a certificate of return to the plaintiff, Uche Ogah, who polled the second highest number of votes in the primary.

Uchechukwu S. Ogah is a Nigerian oil magnate, entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist. Ogah is the President of Master Energy Group, a conglomerate with over 15 subsidiaries and interests across a variety of industries.
In 2014, Dr. Uche Ogah, rejected the outcome of the Abia State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship primary held in Umuahia.

Ogah, who came second in the contest with 103 votes, claimed that the exercise was fraught with fraud.

Ogah said there was no credible and proper accreditiation 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 said.
