Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State has rejected the ruling of an Abuja Federal High Court which sacked him, his deputy and fifteen lawmakers from office.
Umahi maintained that he is still the governor of the state despite the court ruling.
The governor said the ruling would be disregarded by his followers.
Addressing journalists in his office in Abakaliki, Governor Umahi described the ruling as “jungle justice that was purchased.”
The governor insisted that such ruling was not a good development for the Judiciary.
