BAYELSA: APC Wants Court to Reverse Lyon’s Sack

THE All Progressives Congress – APC, is asking the Supreme Court to reverse its decision, disqualifying David Lyon as the Governor-elect of Bayelsa state.

The APC returned to the court barely a week after the apex court nullified the Bayelsa Governorship election and declared PDP Candidate winner.

In an application filed on Thursday, February 20, the party wants the Supreme Court to set aside the wrong interpretation given to its judgment of February 13, and the subsequent execution by the Independent National.

The APC argued that the Supreme Court acted without jurisdiction and denied it – the APC, fair hearing when it proceeded to disqualify its governorship candidate even though the Federal High Court, in the judgment by Justice Inyang Ekwo, which the apex court affirmed, refused the plaintiffs’ prayer to disqualify Lyon.

The party also faulted the interpretation given to the Supreme Court judgment by the INEC in deciding to issue a certificate of return to the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party – PDP.
