Don’t Blame My Running Mate — Lyon On Supreme Court Judgement by lackren(m): 12:28am On Feb 20, 2020
David Lyon, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the November governorship election in Bayelsa state, has asked people not to blame Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo, his running mate, for his removal.

Although Lyon was declared winner of the election, the supreme court sacked him on the grounds that his running mate presented forged documents to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Twenty-four hours later, Douye Diri, his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rival, was sworn in as governor.

In a statement signed by Alphine Ogoh, his media aide, Lyon appealed to his supporters to remain calm and allow the legal team of the party explore “all remedies available in law to restore the mandate of the people”.

He described as “unfounded” the allegations that he was encouraging people to engage in violence following the judgement.

He said stakeholders have the liberty to express their opinions on issues but it should be within the ambit of the law.

“Chief David Lyon reassures Nigerians and the peace-loving people of Bayelsa state that as a law-abiding citizen, he will never support, sponsor or direct anyone to engage in acts inimical to the progress and wellbeing of the same people he seeks to govern, ” the statement read.

“Chief David Lyon insists that those who know him and have interacted with him can attest to the indisputable fact that he is a peace-loving person.

” Chief David Lyon has respect for civil liberty and believes in legal and democratic processes of resolving issues.

“Chief David Lyon also believes that in a democracy, the the court is the last hope of the common man. Following the court pronouncement, he has been preoccupied with exploring all legal processes and remedies available in the constitution in exercise of his fundamental human rights to address the unfortunate incident.

“As a leader, Chief David Lyon implores every Bayelsan, who believes in him and his vision for the state not to blame his running mate for the unfortunate development.”

He noted that a peaceful and stable Bayelsa is what he aspires to govern, and improve upon as a legacy for all.

“Chief David Lyon calls on all political leaders irrespective of their party affiliations to call their teeming supporters to order. He insists that nobody should take laws into their hand,” he said.

“He also expresses his faith and confidence in the judicial process and the Supreme Court in particular, noting that at the end of the day, justice will be done to the good people of Bayelsa State.”

First of all, Oshiomole is to blame for not doing a thorough check on a candidate as huge as deputy governorship candidate.

Second, INEC for it's stupidity not to have disqualified a candidate with seven names. They are getting used to affidavit since Buhari.

Third, his visit to Tinubu has something to do with his predicament.

Knowing there were factions in his party, why did he rush to choose a side?

No one taught him the policy of nonalignment?

Stand alone, and courted like a bride.

Thank you Lyon. Instead of blaming the deputy, why not blame Oshiomhole who failed to his job by screening the certificates

Including Your Mr President, the man Fighting corruption himself who was already set for their swearing in ceremony Knowingfully well the Governor entered through the backdoor

Neither the INEC, Oshomole, Buhari and Timi Preye Silver was ignorant of the Criminal Act. Because the matter was in Public Domain long before the Election

Timipriyei Slyva, the drug addict and wannabe godfather, blinded by ego who imposed an unqualified candidate on his party should take all the blames.

His deputy has a share of the blame, the screening committee of his party and his party also have a share of the blame. INEC too has a share of the party. This is one loss, too painful! It was avoidable but it wasnt.
Mr Lyon should be comforted. If the incumbent works hard enough, APC will not will Bayelsa anytime soon and Lyon will never be governor again. Sincerely, he is not the best APC or Bayelsa can offer. He is rarely articulate like Patience Jonathan...they both gave malapropism effect. Nigeria deserves better. The president, the Govs, the senators, the lg bosses are all a terrible disaster

You didn't do anything, it was Oshiomole that heated up the polity with his unguarded utterances and it beggars belief he's still a free man now.
