Bayelsa: Davido Berates David Lyon (Video)
Following the nullification of David Lyon’s election as the former Bayelsa state Governor-elect, David Adeleke aka Davido has reacted to the supreme court ruling.
CityNews reports that The Supreme Court, on Thursday, sacked the governor-elect of Bayelsa State, David Lyon and his Deputy, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremieoyo.
The apex court, in a unanimous decision by a five-man panel of Justices led by Justice Mary Odili, held that Degi-Eremieoyo presented a forged certificate to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
It held that the Form CF 001 Degi-Eremieoyo submitted to INEC for the purpose of the November 16, 2019, governorship election in the state, contained false information of fundamental nature.
The apex court held that since Degi-Eremieoyo shared a joint ticket with the governor-elect, his disqualification invalidated their nomination by the All Progressive Congress, APC.
Reacting to the drama unfolding, Davido said what is the essence of winning, when the court would still nullify your election.
In Davido’s word:
“Shout out Nigerians, so wait, you win, swear you win, carry your whole family, your friends go government house, chilling, drink and you just wake up,… aiii”
