“It is a procured Judgment” – David Lyon of APC reacts to Supreme Court Judgment sacking him
Former Bayelsa state governor-elect has finally reacted to the court ruling that annulled his 2019 election
– The APC candidate has picked holes in court ruling describing it as a procured judgement
– The sacked governor-elect in a statement urged his supporters to remain calm
Recently sacked Bayelsa state governor-elect, David Lyon, has issued a statement in reaction to the Supreme Court’s judgement, that annulled his election that took place back in 2019.
Vanguard reports that Lyon while speaking at a news conference in Yenagoa rejected the apex court’s ruling and called it a procured judgement. The APC candidate who was represented by Preye Oseke who represents Southern Ijaw federal constituency said the judgement did not reflect the wish of the people.
The sacked governor-elect went on to demand that the INEC should not issue a certificate of return to Senator Douye Diri of the PDP.
He said: “We are in shock. We as a party and as people of Bayelsa are rejecting the judgement completely. It is a procured judgement. While we have our respect for the revered justices, we believe that this is not the wish of Bayelsans.
Again, we are calling on the Independent National Electoral Commission not to issue a certificate of return to the candidate of the PDP because he was unable to score the required 25 percent in two-thirds of the local government areas.
As a party, we are law-abiding, our properties have been destroyed even in the midst of the judgment that came this morning. We are calling on all our supporters to remain calm while our leaders and stakeholders meet and come up with the next line of action. We believe the right thing will be done. The rule of law will be upheld.”
