JUST IN: PDP Submits Name Of Umahi/Deputy’s Replacement To INEC

 The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said it has submitted names of its nominees to replace the sacked Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State and his Deputy, Dr Eric Kelechi Igwe to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja earlier today, ordered the Governor and his deputy, Eric Igwe, to vacate their seats on the grounds that the PDP won the election on March 2019 and not its candidates.

Citing section 221 of the constitution, Justice Inyang Ekwo ordered the PDP immediately send names of replacements to INEC so as to conduct fresh elections.

Addressing a world press conference at the PDP National Headquarters, Wadata Plaza, Abuja, National Chairman, Senator Dr Iyorchia Ayu disclosed that the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) has submitted names of nominees to be sworn in as Governor and Deputy Governor of Ebonyi State.

We asked about the names submitted, he said “we are not going to release the names immediately. But the names will soon be made available to the press”.
