A chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ebonyi, Mr. Osita Ugoji, stated that the sack of Gov David Umahi and his Deputy, Dr Kelechi Igwe of Ebonyi would bring sanity to the country’s political system.
Recall that the court sacked the duo along with 16 members of the Ebonyi House of Assembly following their defection from the PDP to the All Progressives Congress (APC), While reacting to the sack which was ordered by a court on March 8, he also advised politicians to stop defecting at the slightest challenge to their political ambition.
Ugoji, who spoke in an interview with NAN in Abakaliki, said: “There is a need for politicians to show morals in their activities in order to salvage the future of this nation. It’s morally reprehensible to jump from one party to another unless there’s a crisis in your party that might ruin your political future.
“So, we must curtail the excess of the politicians who see their impunity as being above the law. I urge politicians to maintain decorum and stop heating up the polity with incessant defection.
“The judgment is a welcome development for democracy, and it will bring sanity into the political system. The judgment is a sound one it will go a long way to show that the judiciary is the last hope for our democracy,”
