Bayelsa: Again, Supreme Court sacks Lyon, running mate


The Supreme Court on Wednesday finally slammed the door against the ambition of David Lyon of the All Progressives Congress to govern Bayelsa State

The apex court upheld it’s February 13, 2020 decision which threw Lyon’s election into the trash can after his running mate, Degi Eremienyo, submitted forged documents for the governorship election.

The party had approached the apex court to review its judgment on the ground that it lacked the jurisdiction to entertain the matter.

Its team led by Chief Afe Babalola (SAN), failed to sway the court

Among those in the court were Bayelsa State Governor Duoye Diri and APC National Chairman Adams Oshiomhole.
