BREAKING: Supreme Court Sacks Bayelsa Governor-elect, Declares PDP Winner

The governor-elect of Bayelsa State, David Lyon and his Deputy, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremieoyo, have been on Tuesday sacked by the Supreme Court.

Justice Mary Odili, who led the panel of five-man justices held that Degi-Eremieoyo presented a forged certificate to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

It held that the Form CF 001 Degi-Eremieoyo submitted to INEC for the purpose of the November 16, 2019, governorship election in the state, contained false information of fundamental nature.

According to Justice Ejembi Eko who delivered the lead judgement reinstated the November 12, 2019, Judgement of the Federal High Court in Abuja that disqualified Degi-Eremieoyo from participating in the governorship poll.

The apex court held that since Degi-Eremieoyo shared a joint ticket with the governor-elect, his disqualification invalidated their nomination by the All Progressive Congress, APC.

The court however, ordered INEC to immediately withdraw the Certificate of Return that was issued to them and issue a fresh one to the party that secured the second highest number of votes and got the required constitutional spread.
