Party Defection: Gov. Umahi Says He’s Not Worried Over Court Judgment


The Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, has maintained that he has entertained fewer worries since the counter pronouncement by a Federal High Court in Abuja, ordering that he and his deputy, Eric Igwe, vacate their seats as governor and deputy respectively.

The governor’s comments are in reaction to the judgement of a Federal High Court in Abuja, ordering his sack and that of his deputy, following their defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Umahi argued that asides from the immutable fact that he enjoys immunity as an elected governor, votes secured during an election legally belong to the candidate and not a political party.
