BREAKING: Nobody Aside From Lyon Meet Supreme Court Requirements To Be Sworn In As Bayelsa Gov – Oshiomhole


Comrade Adams Oshiomhole , National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress(APC), says no other person aside the APC governorship candidate, David Lyon meet the requirements of the Supreme Court to be sworn in on Friday as Bayelsa Governor.

Oshiomhole made this declaration at a news conference in Abuja in reaction to the Supreme Court verdict which sacked Lyon as Governor-elect on Thursday afternoon.

According to him, the judgement of the Supreme Court said the certificate of return should be issued to the candidate, who has the required spread in the election aside from David Lyon.

Oshiomhole declares that the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senator Douye Diri cannot be sworn in because he did not meet the apex court requirements.

According to the APC National Chairman, “no candidate in the election met the requirement apart from Lyon”, adding that the implication is that from Friday Bayelsa will be without a Governor.
