There was legal confusion in Abia State ysterday as two claimants to the governorship seat emerged. The Independent National Electoral Commision (INEC) issued a fresh certificate of return to Dr Uchechukwu Emeka Ogah, superseding the one earlier issued the incumbent governor, Okezie Ikpeazu following an order of a Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday, sacking the incumbent and enthroning Ogah as the lawful canissdidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2015 governorship election. However the swearing-in of Ogah was stalled by an order of a High Court in the state, which barred the Chief Judge, constitutionally-empowered to undertake the exercise, from conducting it.

Who should be held responsible for the political drama playing out in Abia state? Where is the rule of law in the nation’s constitution
