Supreme Court Sacks David Lyon, Orders Diri Duoye To Be Sworn In by Nksleek: 1:52pm On Feb 13
By Alex Enumah

Barely 24 hours to his inuaguration the Supreme Court has sacked Mr David Lyon as Governor Elect of Bayelsa State.

A five man panel of the apex court presided by Justice Mary Peter-Odili nullified the election of Lyon on the grounds that his deputy, Senator biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo presented false information to INEC in aid of his qualification for the November 16 governorship election in Bayelsa State.

The apex court in the judgment delivered by Justice Ejembi Eko consequently ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC to withdraw the certificate of Return issued to Lyon and Degi-Eremienyo.

Justice Eko also ordered that INEC immediately declare the party with the highest number of lawful votes and geographical spread.

With the judgment of the apex court, candidate of the PDP, Diri Duoye will now be inuagurated as governor of Bayelsa State.

Details later.

Some things are just unbelievable. Aside from proven cases of massive rigging and electoral violence, electoral victories shouldn't be easily upturned.

At this rate, politicians may now be saving for court cases instead of aggressive campaign for votes.

What's the point of the people voting a candidate of their choice when the Supreme Court can upturn it and give the seat to another person?

Dickson wins this and the Jonathans may be in for it.

I said it last year that the second runner up might end up becoming the governor of bayelsa state if he's a smart politician.

If apc bayelsa feels shortchanged they should protest, nobody will stop them its their rights.

APC Government now has 2 options either to restore Ihedioha and stand a chance of retaking oil rich bayelsa state

9ja is the real comedy Central.

I mean, wtf is this?

I'm so disappointed in this judgement, not because I'm from Bayelsa or APC supporter, but because the people's mandate has been stolen.

People weh don run go join APC go still run come back PDP, and the cycle continues.

What sort of a country is this for God's sake?
