SUPREME COURT SACKS DAVID LYON, ORDERS DIRI DUOYE TO BE SWORN IN

Barely 24 hours to his inuaguration the Supreme Court has
sacked Mr David Lyon as Governor Elect of Bayelsa State.
A five man panel of the apex court presided by Justice Mary
Peter-Odili nullified the election of Lyon on the grounds that
his deputy, Senator biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo presented
false information to INEC in aid of his qualification for the
November 16 governorship election in Bayelsa State.
The apex court in the judgment delivered by Justice Ejembi
Eko consequently ordered the Independent National
Electoral Commission INEC to withdraw the certificate of
Return issued to Lyon and Degi-Eremienyo.
Justice Eko also ordered that INEC immediately declare the
party with the highest number of lawful votes and
geographical spread.
With the judgment of the apex court, candidate of the PDP,
Diri Duoye will now be inuagurated as governor of Bayelsa
State.
Details later.
