The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has held that Governor Ben Ayade and his deputy cannot be removed by the judiciary in view of their defection from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressive Congress.

Justice Taiwo Taiwo gave the verdict on Thursday after postponing dates for the judgment twice.

“The point must be made that it is not the duty of the court to make law. If a gap is disclosed, the remedy lies in amending the act”

“This court has no power to declare vacant the seat of the governor and deputy,” he said.
