BREAKING: Court sacks Ebonyi Gov, Umahi, deputy over unlawful defection to APC

Umahi suspends salaries Umahi

Mr Dave Umahi, the governor of Ebonyi State, and his deputy, Dr Kelechi Igwe, have been sacked by a Federal High Court in Abuja for unlawfully defecting from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Their defection was deemed illegal, unconstitutional, null, and void by the court, and they were ordered to vacate their positions immediately.

In a ruling issued on Tuesday, Justice Inyang Ekwo ordered Umahi and his deputy to cease acting as Governor and Deputy Governor of Ebonyi State.

The judge held that the votes that brought them to office belonged to the PDP and cannot hold on to the votes having elected to jettison the party that nominated them.

Justice Ekwo also held that the votes cast for PDP in the March 9, 2019 governorship election are not transferrable to the APC that failed in the election.

Details shortly.
