Umahi’s Sack: Other Govs Who Defected Will Be Affected’ – Shehu Sani

Must read

A former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani, has reacted to a court ruling which sacked the Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi.

Sani said the court ruling would also affect other serving governors who defected.

Justice Inyang Ekwo of an Abuja Federal High Court had sacked Umahi as governor of Ebonyi State and his Deputy, Dr. Kelechi Igwe from office.

The judge sacked Umahi and his Deputy over their unlawful defection from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He ruled that the governor and his Deputy’s defection was unlawful, unconstitutional, null, and void.

The judge ordered them to vacate their offices immediately.

Ekwo held that the vote that brought the governor and his Deputy into office belonged to the PDP and that they cannot hold onto the votes having elected to jettison the party that nominated them.

Reacting, Sani, in a tweet, wrote: “The Court sacking of Ebonyi Governor will affect other serving Governors that defected.”
