INEC Replies Oshiomhole: We Obeyed Supreme Court On Bayelsa Like We Did On Imo by nairavsdollars(f): 7:45am On Feb 15
Temidayo Akinsuyi, Lagos

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Friday said it will not join issues with Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, National chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) over the Supreme Court judgment on Bayelsa governorship election.

The apex court yesterday sacked the APC’s governor-elect in Bayelsa State, David Lyon, and his running mate, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo and pronounced the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidates, Douye Diri and his running mate, Lawrence Ewrujakpor as the winners of the election held in the state.

It gave the ruling after it had found irregularities in the credentials of the ex-APC deputy governor-elect in Bayelsa State, Degi-Eremienyo, and annulled the joint ticket of both Lyon and Degi-Eremienyo.

The apex court then ordered INEC to issue fresh certificates to the candidates of the party with the next highest votes.

However, in a press conference on Friday afternoon, Oshiomhole rejected the result and accused INEC of creating crisis in the system by issuing certificate of return to Diri.

Oshiomhole added that INEC wrongly interpreted the Supreme Court judgment, thereby creating illegality in the electoral process.
“INEC has assumed the position of the court by interpreting the judgment the way it has done, which it has no power to do so” he said.

However, speaking in a chat with Daily Independent, Rotimi Oyekanmi, Chief Press Secretary to the INEC chairman said the electoral body only complied with the ruling of the Supreme Court just as it did with the judgment on Imo governorship election.

“It is not the Independent National Electoral Commission’s practice to join issues with politicians on any matter, especially on issues under its jurisdiction”.

“The Supreme Court on 13th February 2020 delivered a judgment in a pre-election suit on the Bayelsa State Governorship Election held on 16th November 2019”.

“INEC received the Certified True Copy of the judgment on 14th February, convened a meeting this morning to study the judgment and at the end of that meeting, took a decision to comply with it”.

“Therefore, as far as we are concerned, we have done what the Supreme Court ordered us to do and we couldn’t have done otherwise” he said.

Oshiomhole as a Ruling party’s National Chairman can’t even maintain stability in his party, while Secondus as an Opposition party’s National Chairman is waxing stronger and conquering.

This shows the difference between the two parties. One is filled with incompetent, clueless, timid and gullible members while the other is filled with tactical, intelligent and smart members.

in politics, whatever favour us is a good judgment, what does not is a bad judgment.
The difference is that APC will tell you they will not accept such results but when it goes their way, they keep mute and right now, they are adding violence
While PDP will insult INEC, Supreme court and also tell you PMB has bribed them. If you make them understand, they will insult ur parents but when it goes their way, they will congratulate INEC and tell them to give credible results irrespective of who is involved.

Bayelsa state and Imo state judgement does not go down well with me, this is against the people's wish

I’m seeing the Supreme Court sentence as a blessing in disguise to the Nigeria rotten system.

If there is anything Buhari got right, I will say he’s right in appointing justice Tanko.

Normally in sane countries, the politicians should have integrity and the Supreme Court should be the last resort for just laws.

Now going forward, the political parties will be diligent enough in their primaries and they will uphold integrity at all times coz they know the Supreme Court will overrule any election based on fraud or certificate forgery.

This is what we need in Nigeria. Kudos to the Supreme Court!

the truth is that, pdp is still stronger and bigger than apc, in the 2019 general election, pdp won the presidential election and even so many states including Kano but because apc is still in power, they rigged the election.

PDP Wailers and IPOB touts are very happy with INEC and the Supreme Court today.
Now it's Hosana, Hosana.

Tomorrow when judgement favours the other side, it would be Crucify them, Crucify them.


Today "Judiciary has shown it's independence"
"INEC stood it's ground"



Tomorrow "Buhari has destroyed the Judiciary"
"Mahmoud is working for Buhari"
"Tanko must resign he is working for Buhari"


Today
"The Supreme Court is infallible because it is final"

Tomorrow
"The Supreme Court has carried out a miscarriage of justice, it must reverse itself"

When it happened in Imo State, APC was jubilating and now it has happen to them so they should take it in good faith.
Because, it happened to "Olugbon", "Alara", "Orangun Ile-Ila" , and Ajeroo" all took heart

Mr. OSHIOMHOLE take heart

This loud mouthed ekuke dog is becoming a big problem both within his party and the country at large.

He has practically usurped the responsibilities of the party's spokesperson just because he cannot control his loose tongue.
