From a strict democracy considerations, one wonders whether the judgment accords with the idea of majority rule. How possibly democratic is it for a candidate who won majority votes in an election to be denied the fruits of his victory, and the people denied his services, because of a technical issue of the qualification of his running mate?
Sadly, the people’s decision was not considered at all by the justices of the Supreme Court. David Lyon won the election clearly, he should never have been denied the right fruit of his victory simply because of a technical issue.

Hmmmm.... This escapade wouldn't have happen if the Deputy has not perjured himself, the comment above said it shouldn't affect the principal. Really, it shouldn't affect the boss what you mean? When the sinner suffer, the righteous also do. I don't know if you get my gist, but the principal should know about misdeeds of his deputy.

Academic qualification is a constitutional requirement and also a ground for disqualification. Forgery is a crime! Do you really think this is a mere technicality? In fact criminal proceedings should be instituted against the APC deputy governorship candidate for forgery and perjury because he swore to those forged documents under judicial oath!

The deputy candidate should have been disqualified without touching the governor-elect. In the case of James Faleke vs Yahaya Bello, the Supreme Court agreed with APC that a dead candidate can be substituted even after the election. So, why can’t the same apply in this case?
Democracy should be about the people and not about the justices of the Supreme Court. At worst, the court should have ordered another election just like it did in Bauchi some years back when the deputy governor was disqualified. The people should be the ones deciding who rules them and not some justices somewhere.

I sincerely pity David Lyon. The government should do all within its power to arrest the deputy governorship candidate for perjury. If not for anything, for bringing the party a big shame.
|Re: Bayelsa: Lawyers differ on Supreme Court’s ouster of David Lyon by mushystuff: 6:33am On Feb 14|
Death is not a ground for disqualification. Deficient or forged academic qualification is. One party cannot be allowed to pick n choose just because!
For me, the Kogi case you refer to is an aberration because death was the issue not a disqualification and elections had yet to be concluded. I hope you know Faleke was not allowed to continue instead a fresh candidate who wasn't on the ticket was nominated ie Yahaya Bello. If you feel the governor elect should not be affected, why was the deputy governor elect in Kogi affected then? It is the yeye APC abracadabra that no one has bothered to challenge.
The point is, the party should have reasonably foreseen the issue of academic qualification and addressed it satisfactorily before nomination. That is why the fallout like in this Bayelsa case is stringent. On the other hand, no one can foresee death unless they chose to field an already terminally ill candidate.

|Re: Bayelsa: Lawyers differ on Supreme Court’s ouster of David Lyon by seunmsg(m): 6:41am On Feb 14|
Faleke was allowed to continue as the deputy governor while Yahaya Bello was brought in as the governorship candidate. The same thing should have happened in Bayelsa. Lyon should have been allowed to continue while the deputy is disqualified. In the alternative, the Bauchi situation where a fresh election was ordered after the deputy governor was disqualified should have happen.
There is nothing democratic about giving victory to a candidate that was overwhelmingly rejected by the people. This is not democracy.

First, I have edited my post. Secondly, please fill me in on the Bauchi scenario. I don't quite have the details so I can't comment just yet.
Back to this issue, for Kogi, silly as that was, the greater common sense would have been for Faleke to become the governorship candidate and not nominate one over him just as would have been the case if Audu had died after they had been sworn in. Placing Yahaya over him was based on religious and tribal considerations plus the working relationship would have definitely been sour so that is why Faleke turned it down. Bottom line though is that there was no disqualification and elections had yet to be concluded.
For Bayelsa however, this issue was a pre-election matter. Again by the electoral law, a ticket is joint except that of legislative positions. The fates of both parties are tied and what affects one affects the other too. Like I said, grounds for disqualification do not include death. If the Bayelsa deputy candidate had died(God forbid), we would not be having this scenario. However, he's been caught in a crime of forgery! Since they haven't been sworn in, they are still joined together. Even if they had been sworn in, because it's a pre-election matter, it would have still affected them both because the implication of the judgement is that APC did not have any candidate.
No party can nominate a governorship candidate without a deputy, INEC will not accept such incomplete nomination. The court is therefore saying that since the deputy was not qualified, he was not a candidate ab initio. APC therefore did not have a candidate so their participation in the election is an exercise in futility.

Let's stop deceiving ourselves. Nigeria has no law. The law depends on who it is affecting.
But my question now is.... Since PDP is now saying it was a Just-Judgement. Is our Democracy no longer in danger? Will they now allow Tanko to still continue as CJN?
David Lyon was rehearsing yesterday. I feel for him.

The Supreme court has spoken, which should be final, as it is all over the world.
It all depends on who the indigenes of Bayelsa want and not what the Hypocrites that have never stepped their feet on Bayelsa state are shouting about.
For those of us that are not card carrying members of any political party, but only vote for good men and women that we believe can move their immediate environment forward (same reason all of us @MANNABBQGRILLS voted for our darling Daddy in the presidential election and voted for another candidate in another party in our state of residence, no apologies to Sanwo-Olu!)
It is sad that the days intellectuals (from opposing and different political affiliations) discuss politics on the political threads on Nairaland is gone and now it has gone to kids, hypocrites and dirty agberos that curse and abuse their mothers and fathers with no reasonable and sensible posts to contribute)
It is a always good and refreshing to see that we have a President who does not intervene in the rule of law.
Elections In Nigeria now,
There is no need to fear.
Why? Because the will of Nigerians will not be subverted. Never! A President once told us in this country that the coming polls would be do or die.
Not with President Buhari. Fair is fair. No foul play. Under his watch, his political party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has lost gubernatorial elections in Bayelsa, Oyo State and Anambra states.
At the last Council of States meeting, Gov Willie Obiano publicly registered his appreciation to President Buhari, for the level playing ground he made available during the election in his state. With do or die apostles, and a certain political party in power, such would never happen. Not with their garrison mentality. All states are territories that must be conquered, willy-nilly.
APC has won gubernatorial positions under Buhari in Kogi, Ondo and Edo states. The victories were fair and square. The party lost in Bayelsa, Oyo, Anambra etc.
This President would never manipulate victory for anyone, not even his own party. And you ask us not to trust him?
We will, and no mistake.
God bless our darling Daddy President Muhammadu Buhari.
God bless Nigeria.
Just 3 mins ago sir!
All of us @MANNABBQGRILLS love you too.....it's Valentine's Day.
Let's share the love around!
Stay blessed Chairman!

mushystuff:The Kogi case was left to rest due to ignorance. If PDP had gone to court on the ground of wrong substitution maybe a precedent would have been set. In Bayelsa, the matter was pre-election. PDP went to court to stop APC and INEC from accepting Lyon and deputy nomination for forgery. The High Court disqualified them. Then APC went to procure an appeal that allowed them to participate in election. If you recall INEC said they were going ahead with the elections inspite of various court rulings. Now the final verdict is that APC was never qualified to participate. Sad but this us the law.

I have read and had witnessed that when any time a Court' judgement should favour the PDP, her party members and the supporters will hail the declaration. When anytime a judgement should favour the APC, the PDP members would, usually blame the APC for interference and manipulation of such a judgement. I had expected that the INEC who has been saddled with the responsibility of conducting verifiable and good elections would not be questioned for their role. Example is the Zamfara saga. The PDP accepted the declaration of the Supreme Court.
The Imo State declaration of the Supreme Court remained unacceptable to the PDP but the one for Bayelsa State would be greeted with ovation. The Imo State matter was taken to Trump of the USA for his instructions to Nigeria that the Judges' decision should be reversed.
The Supreme Court's declaration on the Local Government Chairmen reinstatement was a good one in Ekiti State but in Oyo State wherein the Supreme Court told the PDP that the Governor lacks the power to sack the Chairmen is still been contested by the PDP.
I believe that to some extent, people should have confidence in the determination of the Supreme Court Judges, perceived/interpreted collectively or individually as either bad or good.
