Gov Umahi’s sack: PDP names replacement for Umahi, asks INEC to impeach assembly lawmakers


The People’s Democratic Party PDP has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC to declare its candidates, Iduma Iga-riwey as the new Governor of Ebonyi State and Fred Udo-gwu as his Deputy.

The party made the submission at a press conference following the judgement by a Federal High Court in Abuja which sacked Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi, and his Deputy Eric Igwe for defecting from the PDP to the All Progressives Congress.

At the conference, national Chairman of the PDP Iyor-chia Ayu implored INEC to issue Iga-riwey and Udogwu with their certificates of return so they can be sworn in immediately.
