Governor Dave Umahi has reacted to reports of his sack by a Federal High Court in Abuja over his defection to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Speaking to Journalists in Abakaliki, Umahi said that the judgement would not stand and that his followers will not obey it.

He described the ruling as “jungle justice that was purchased.”

The governor insisted that such ruling was not a good development for the Judiciary. POLITICS NIGERIA earlier reported that Justice Inyang Ekwo of an Abuja Federal High Court had sacked Umahi and his Deputy, Dr. Kelechi Igwe from office.

It can be recalled that the PDP had in an originating summons marked FHC/ABJ/CS/920/2021, approached the court to declare that by defecting from the party on which they were elected as governor and deputy governor of Ebonyi State to the APC, they had resigned or are deemed to have resigned from office.

Justice Ekwo, in a Judgement on Tuesday, held that held that the total number of 393,042 votes Umahi secured at the March 9, 2019 Ebonyi State governorship election belonged to the PDP, hence could not be legally transferred to the APC.
