Court Sacks 20 Cross River State Lawmakers That Defected From PDP With Governor Ayade To APC
20 lawmakers of the Cross River State House of Assembly who defected from Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress (APC), have been sacked by a federal high court sitting in Abuja.
Justice Taiwo Taiwo in his judgement on Monday March 21, held that the lawmakers needed to vacate their seats since they had abandoned the party which brought them to power.
The judgement followed a suit filed by the PDP marked FHC/ABJ/CS/975/2021. This is coming weeks after Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi, his deputy and some lawmakers in the state were sacked by the court over defection.
