A federal high court in Abuja has ordered the removal of David Umahi and Eric Kelechi Igwe, as governor and deputy governor of Ebonyi state, following 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.
