We Will Comply With Supreme Court Judgement On Bayelsa — INEC by Ctorch: 3:24pm On Feb 13
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said that it would give effect to today’s Supreme Court judgement sacking the All Progressives Congress’ (APC) candidate as the winner of the November 16, 2019 governorship election in the state.

INEC National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee (IVEC), Festus Okoye, told Daily Trust exclusively today in Abuja that the commission would back to its Operation Department to determine the party that meet up the Apex Court ruling.

“The Supreme Court has directed the commission to issue the Certificate of Return (CoR) to the political party that placed second in the Bayelsa governorship election and which also has the geographical spread in the election.
“So, what the commission would do is to go back to its Operation Department and make a determination on which political party came second in the election and which political party got the geographical spread in the election.

“Based on that, we would carry out the judgement of the Supreme Court. We would do that when we get the judgement of the Supreme Court, so that we would know clearly what the Supreme Court want us to do and we would carry it out,” Okoye told Daily Trust.

The Supreme Court earlier today sacked the Bayelsa State governor-elect, David Lyon of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and his running-mate, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo 24 hours to their inauguration on February 14.

A five-man panel of the apex court led by Justice Mary Peter-Odili ordered INEC to withdraw the Certificate of Return (CoR) issued to the APC candidate as the winners of the November 16, 2019 governorship election in the state.

Accordingly, the apex court in its unanimous judgement delivered by Justice Ejembi Eko, also ordered INEC to issue fresh certificates to the candidates of the party with the next highest votes and with the required constitutional spread of votes in the results of the election.
Lyon was sacked for presenting a running mate with fake qualification.

INEC have failed woefully by failing to duly scrutinise all contestants for elective posts before elections.It's dangerous and too bad that the electorate and INEC dont help in determining election winners in this dispensation but the supreme court.

Oh! Now I understand. I've always wondered why all you do on Nairaland is to cancel my comments without typing a simple line sentence.
It's because you have difficulty in expressing yourself in English coupled with a dumb knowledge of anything grin

See this clown.
It's not in the position of INEC,based on the judgement to go back and find out anything.
SC has said this man is the winner,give him certificate of return and swear him in.Q.E.D
Did INEC bother or have power to say Uzodinma was not properly declared because the votes tally didn't match the accredited voters? No, because the SC had declared who it termed was the winner, fraudulent as it was.

sad Even though I'm a born again Christian, I'm shocked to the bone that PDP will continue in bayelsa after years of misrule. This is a tough time for me and my fellow bayelsans because we came out enmasse to vote for APC. PDP has nothing to offer we bayelsans. We bayelsans must protest against this Supreme Court judgment sad

Let's stop bringing Imo State and PDP into this matter. Has Lyon and His Deputy presented us with the facts of what they submitted to INEC? Have they claimed that the Judgment is perverse?

If they feel the Judgment is perverse, let them present the facts let's analyze it dispassionately.
