A federal high court in Abuja has ordered the removal of Ebonyi State Governor and his deputy, David Umahi and Eric Kelechi Igwe respectively over their defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressive Congress (APC).

In the judgement delivered on Monday, Inyang Ekwo, the judge, held that the 393, 042 votes polled by Umahi during in the March 9 2019 governorship election belonged to the PDP and cannot be legally transferred to the APC.

Umahi left the PDP in November 2020 attributing the action to the ‚Äúinjustice‚ÄĚ done to the south-east.
