The leader of the legal team handling the case between Governor Okezie Ikpeazu and Friday Nwosu, Bar. Theo Nkire has said that the issue of tax matters which has been in the news reels in recent weeks would soon become history. This is coming as the Federal High Court sitting in Owerri presided over by Justice A. I. Allogah, struck out the suit filed by Friday Nwosu against Dr. Ikpeazu over falsification of tax documents.

The court in its ruling said the case against Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State by Bar. Friday Nwosu lacked merit and was therefore dismissed. The court ruled that  the documents issued by the Board of Internal Revenue were genuine and good.

Addressing newsmen in Umuahia, Bar. Nkire explained that just as legal calendar begins from September and Ends July, so does Tax law calendar begin from January 1 and ends December 31, noting that the day of the year makes no difference.

He described the judgement by the Okon Abang Federal High Court as a misconception and ignorance of tax laws.

Welcoming the legal team at Government House Umuahia, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu said the ruling is a show of victory over darkness, equity and justice and for the nation's judiciary.

The Governor who thanked God for his love for Abia and the journey so far, said the attack on the peace in Abia for the past weeks is an attempt to cause anarchy in the state. He expressed confidence that Abia would celebrate at the end.

Dr. Ikpeazu called on Abians from across divides to join hands with him in building a better Abia, noting that he does not want to lead a disintegrated state, and reiterated his commitment to safeguarding and sustaining the peace in Abia.

He warned those planning to execute evil in the state to desist from such as it would  be resisted with stiff opposition.

Gov. Ikpeazu thanked the  legal team and Abians for standing by the government and said the distractions won't deter his resolution to build a better and new Abia.
