The Lawmakers of Ebonyi State House of Assembly are currently meeting in the lodge of the Speaker, Mr. FrJimancis Nwifuru, over the planned defection of Governor David Umahi to the All Progressives Congress.
The meeting which started by 10a.m Monday morning was convened by the Speaker to brief other Lawmakers on the development.
Speaker Nwifuru, and his colleagues had reportedly met with Governor Umahi on Saturday, where he briefed them on his planned defection to APC.
But some of the lawmakers are said not to be willing to join the planned defection.
However, it was gathered that the import of the meeting by the Lawmakers was to give the PDP ultimatum to zone its presidential ticket to Southeast or risk losing the state to APC.
More details soon..
