David Umahi challenges his sack

Written by on March 9, 2022

Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, has challenged his sack by a Nigerian High Court judgement, vowing to remain governor of the State.

The Governor, who described the Justice Inyang Ekwo judgement as a jungle justice, said he has forwarded a petition against the Judge to the Nigerian Judicial Council (NJC).

He said the Court lacks the powers to remove him as governor, as he is covered by an immunity clause which protects him from any form of litigation that is not pre-election and tribunal matter.

Umahi also noted that there were two other similar cases on defection of a Governor by an Ebonyi High Court and another in Zamfara, which ruled in favour of the Governor.
