Simon Ekpa sends strong message to Gov Umahi after sack by court

Gov David Umahi

The Biafra agitators would not forgive Ebonyi State Governor Dave Umahi for his alleged actions towards the agitators, according to Simon Ekpa, a self-proclaimed disciple of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra.

Recall that the governor and his deputy, Dr Kelechi Igwe, were fired by a Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday for defecting from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the governing All Progressives Congress, APC.

In a ruling, Justice Inyang Ekwo said that the votes that elected them belonged to the opposing party, and that they could not retain those votes after electing to dump the party that nominated them.

Umahi has, however, declared that he still remain in his position as the governor of the state, stressing that the order from court was unconstitutional.

Reacting, Ekpa, who is a dual citizen of both Nigeria and Finland said in a tweet on his official Twitter handle that the governor was earlier warned against affiliating with the ruling party.

He said, “The name of the new Governor of Ebonyi State is called Uduma something… Tell Umahi that Biafrans will never forgive him. We warned the little Hitler of Ebonyi State, he never believed a day like this will come.

“Umahi said the only way he can vacate the office of the governor of Ebonyi State is by death, resignation or impeachment by the state house of Assembly.

“The question now is, why same Umahi has been parading himself with Hope Uzodinma who became governor without these three steps”.
