Bayelsa: Oshiomhole kicks, INEC Waiting

Following the nullification of David Lyon’s Election, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, has said that no one will be sworn-in tomorrow.

He said this while speaking to reporters at the party’s National Headquarters, in Abuja, on Thursday.

Sacking the APC candidates, who would have been sworn-in today, 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 INEC.

Lyon polled 352,552 votes to defeat his closest rival and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Duoye Diri, who scored 14 3,172 votes Few days to the election, the PDP and its candidate secured a court order disqualifying Degi-Eremieoyo but the appeal court cleared the APC candidate to run.


THE Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has declared its readiness to act on the Supreme Court judgement sacking Bayelsa State Governor-elect, David Lyon, and his deputy, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremieoyo but cannot do so now.

Reason: It is yet to get the court order.
