Bayelsa: Supreme court dismisses Lokpobiri’s appeal, affirms Lyon’s victory by References: 2:05pm On Feb 11
The Supreme court has dismissed the appeal filed by Senator Heineken Lokpobiri challenging the declaration of David Lyon as the flag bearer of the APC in Bayelsa State.

In a unanimous judgment read by Inyang Okoro, the five member panel held that section 285 subsection 9 of the 1999 constitution as amended does not admit any elongation of time, when it comes to pre-election matters.

The court said ”Any party seeking redress must file within the 14 days period”

The appellant cause of action arose on 4th September when he was not declared the winner and not 7th September
The court held that Lokpobiri’s appeal lacks merit and accordingly dismissed.

Lokpobiri who is a former Minister of State for Agriculture had approached the court, asking it to declare him, and not Lyon the authentic candidate of the APC.

He told the court that the governorship primary conducted by the APC in Bayelsa State was not done in compliance with the guidelines and the constitution of the party, and therefore, concluded that the party had no candidate.

However, the Court of Appeal, in Port Harcourt, upturned the High Court’s decision last month, declaring that the APC had a candidate in the governorship election.

Good for Lyon, God has ordained him to oversee the affairs of Bayelsa for the next 4 years. Only if he can surpass what his predecessors had achieved so far in order to bring the state to a contemporary one.wink

Bring succour to the common man in the streets of your state with your office and confirmed victory, Lyon.

Meanwhile, Obaseki should focus on building bridges in Edo instead of trying to pull the roof down on everyone's head in the state.

Hypocrite!

The same Supreme Court under Tanko gifted Zamfara and Rivers to PDP 100% in 2019.

The same Tanko-led Supreme Court ruled in favour of PDP in Sokoto (in spite of a very slim 320 margin with so many cancelled votes in APC strongholds), Benue, Bauchi, Taraba, Adamawa, etc.

Hatred will kill some of you.

Dunderhead!
