[BREAKING]: Defection: Court Sacks Ebonyi State Governor Umahi And His Deputy

Published

on

Abuja Federal High Court has authorized Dave Umahi, the Executive Governor of Ebonyi State and his deputy, Eric Igwe, to leave their seats as the current governor and deputy of the state, on grounds that the (PDP)-Peoples Democratic Party Candidate won the election on March 2019 and not its candidate.

Having defected to the (APC)-All Progressives Congress, Ebonyi State Governor Umahi and his deputy cannot switch the mandate of the PDP to the APC party.

Referring to section 221 of the constitution, Justice Inyang Ekwo authorized the PDP instantly send names of replacements to Electoral Commission-INEC so that new elections can be performed.

Justice Ekwo also ruled the (INEC) Independent National Electoral Commission to stop from recognising Dave Umahi and Igwe as the Executive governor and deputy governor of the Ebonyi State from now on.

Details shortly…
