Supreme Court Sacks Bayelsa APC Governor-Elect, Lyon


The Supreme Court on Thursday sacked Mr. David Lyon, of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the Governor-elect for Bayelsa State.

The apex court, in a unanimous judgment delivered by Justice Ejembi Ekwo, ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to withdraw the Certificate of Return issued to Lyon and a fresh one issued to the governorship candidate with the highest votes cast and wide geographical spread in the governorship election held on November 16, 2020.

Lyon was sacked for presenting a running mate with a fake certificate in the said election.

With this judgment just delivered, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Diri Duoye with the highest lawful votes and with wide geographical spread will eventually become the next governor of Bayelsa.

More to come…
