Dickson Tells APC To Take Supreme Court Verdict In Good Faith by fergie006: 8:56pm On Feb 13
The outgoing Governor of Bayelsa state, Hon. Seriake Dickson, has urged the leaders and members of All Progressives Congress (APC) to take Thursday’s judgement of the Supreme Court which nullified the election of the APC candidate, Chief David Lyon, in good faith and remain peaceful.

Speaking at a media chat at the Government House in Yenagoa today, the governor warned against anybody from taking law into his/her hand.

He also called on political parties to be calm and embrace peace, even as the new governor will be sworn in on Friday.

Daily Trust reports that the Supreme Court had on Thursday ruled that Lyon’s Deputy, Senator Degi Ereminyo submitted forged documents to INEC during the election, which therefore disqualified the joint ticket and nomination of the APC candidate.

The court also ordered INEC to withdraw the certificate of return issued to them and reissue same to the party that took second with the required constitutional spread during the election.

He said: “I commend the Supreme Court on the judgement and call for calm among party faithful. Let us have peace and stability. Everyone should take it in good faith.

“We should not do anything to cause breakdown of law. We must continue to run an inclusive system.

“The Supreme Court ruling today has brought victory to all of us and we give all glory to God.

I hail the Supreme Court as an instrument to deliver the judgement.

“I, therefore call for reconciliation among us as well as other parties in the state.

“As I will be stepping down on Friday, February 14, I am grateful to God and to the people of Bayelsa.

“I knew all Bayelsa people supported me; despite difficulties but I believe we have achieved tremendously in the past eight years. I urge them to continue to work for our dear state.”

I think the time has come for all our politicians, from Mr President to the least Local Government Chairman to go and register a business name for once and stop deceiving everybody with Leadership

The same way PDP took Imo judgement in good faith, right?

APC should not accept the unjust judgement. They should make noise, protest, write to all foreign embassies and go back to the Supreme Court to ask for a review of the case. The Supreme Court must reverse itself on this one. The people cannot vote overwhelmingly for a candidate only for five people to sit down somewhere and trash the decision of the majority while victory is awarded to the loser.

He's actually right. You lots wailed all over the threads created then with all sorts of funny tales and lamentations...All of a sudden, the same supreme court you accused the senile old islamist of controlling, gives a verdict that goes PDP's way and y'all are dancing and salivating.

Bottomline, the hypocrisy displayed by y'all (APC ans PDP), is nauseating

Why Diri cannot be sworn in as Bayelsa state Governor despite supreme court verdict

Results of the Bayelsa guber election.
1. Ogbia LGA:
APC - 58,016 *80.8%*
PDP - 13,763 *19.2%*
2. Yenagoa LGA:
APC - 24,607 *70.3%*
PDP - 19,184 *29.7%*
3. Brass LGA:
APC - 23,831 *69.6%*
PDP - 10,410 *30.4%*
4. Okuma/Opokuma LGA:
APC - 8,934 *36.7%*
PDP - 15,360 *63.2%*
5. Nembe LGA:
APC - 83,041 *99%*
PDP - 874 *1%*
Sagbama LGA:
APC - 7,831 *11.9%*
PDP - 60,399 *88.5%*
7. Southern Ijaw LGA:
APC - 124,803 *96.2%*
PDP - 4,898 *3.8%*
Now ⅔ of 7 LGAs is 7x ⅔ = 4.7
This means the person to be declared winner must score 25% votes in at least 5 LGAs. But from the above results PDP scored 25% in only 4 LGAs. So no one may be sworn in in Bayelsa tomorrow.
INEC will have to conduct fresh elections for Bayelsa.

As PDP took IMO judgement in good faith?
Re: Dickson Tells APC To Take Supreme Court Verdict In Good Faith by Openbusiness: 5:40am On Feb 14
From one horrible judgment in Imo, where total votes the Supreme Court passed to Hope was greater than the total INEC acccredited voters, to another horrible judgment in Bayelsa where the people's electoral power to choose their own leaders is cancelled and their choice removed because a deputy candidate forged documents. Is it not the deputy alone that ought to be removed or substituted with someone else? So if Osinbajo is guilty of forgery, will the supreme court remove Buhari too? The supreme court under Buhari has gone totally bunkers, a national shame and disaster with evil judgments that turns justice upside down on its head. Everything under this Buhari regime has turned into a disaster, even the Supreme Court.

Re: Dickson Tells APC To Take Supreme Court Verdict In Good Faith by Godwin2am(m): 5:42am On Feb 14
THE OPIUM AND THE PEOPLE
Opium is a drug used to numb pain and help the patients sleep. The opium is like an anaesthetic. Anaesthetics are not curative, their function is to sedate a patient as he undergoes what could have been an unbearably painful treatment. Any patient given anaesthetics without curative procedures will soon become worse.
"Religion is the opium of the people" is a famous statement of Karl Marx. This is true, but relative. In other words, religion was not meant to be an opiate: a drug that numbs your pain but never treats it. Religion was meant to facilitate your relationship with your creator and help you deal positively with the supernatural dimension of reality. Don't make it an opium because you become an addict if you do. You know what happens to addicts: the more of the substance they take the worse they become until they become destroyed completely.
Every addiction is a convenient flight from a reality, a substitution of an uncomfortable truth with a convenient falsehood. Don't let religion become an opium. An opium makes your FEELING BRAIN take absolute control with no regards to your THINKING BRAIN. It makes what you feel the reality, and feelings are not always accurate.
When you hear a rousing sermon from a man of God asking you to give all your January earnings as first fruit so that your year will be prosperous, it's your FEELING BRAIN that will be activated spontaneously and jump into the driving seat.
There is no stats to establish that 'first fruiter have better financial success in the year than others. Moreover God is not babalawo that demands things before the client gets help.
Therefore, THINK. If you suspend the robust use of your THINKING BRAIN, religion becomes your opium, it makes you FEEL VERY GOOD but not good, it makes you FEEL RICH but you ain't rich, it makes you FEEL like your destiny is in a ministry but it ain't, it makes you FEEL like you are so special that your case is different from everyone's but you ain't, it makes you run away from confronting the harsh realities of life frontally.
The Supreme Court has sacked senator Lyon as governor of Bayelsa state and ordered the swearing in of Hope a. Some people are already blaming a certain priest while some are praising him depending on what camp they belong. That happens when you look at the issue from religious prism, which should'nt. If the judgement of the Supreme Court is wrong and you accept it because of a certain 'prophecy', religion has become your opium and you are stuck in a rot. If the judgement is true but you reject it claiming that it was because of a certain 'prophecy' you are also high on the opiate of religion. Analyze the case from its pure legal, political and electoral angles and be informed.
The little I know is that having the highest number of votes doesn't necessarily win you an election, it takes more than that. I also know that the Nigerian judiciary is very funny, sometimes it panders to partisan politics as against jurisprudence. In Nigeria the judiciary falls victim of willing and unwilling manipulation by the political class.
Now if Don't let your religion be your opium, think it through, God gave us brain and that's one thing that has stood human beings above other animals.
Look at the electricity that your life depends on, it didn't come out from 21 days fasting and prayer, it didn't come from first fruits and tithe( as good as these are), it came from THINKING BRAIN. The car you drive, the phones you use, imagine your life now without phone, internet, car, fans etc, these things didn't come by 'prophecy', they came from THINKING BRAINS, God blessed us with them through people who used their THINKING BRAIN. Such people did not make their religion an opium, you too shouldn't.
Let me come and be going
