The governorship candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, Abia State, Professor Greg Ibe, has urged his teeming supporters and APGA members in the state not to panic over the judgement of Abuja High Court nullifying the governorship primary in the state.

Justice Binta Nyako of Abuja High Court, who delivered the judgement in a suit filed by one of the governorship aspirants, Chief Chikwe Udensi, ordered a fresh primary within 14 days.

This is coming barely 24 hours after a federal high court in Umuahia, quashed a suit filed by another aspirant, Gen. Ijioma N. Ijioma, also seeking the nullification of the primary election, for lack of merit.

Udensi and Ijioma came third and fourth respectively in the May 29 primary won by Professor Ibe, while Etigwe Uwa, SAN, came second.

Professor Ibe in a statement by his Media Aide, Rev. Sleek Ogwo, said that his lawyers had appealed the judgment, adding that he had also secured a stay of execution.

He also said that the inauguration of his Campaign Council scheduled for Friday, as well as campaigns would continue as scheduled.
