David Lyon

The Supreme Court has struck out the application of the All Progressive Congress (APC) seeking a reversal of the judgment which sacked David Lyon as winner of the Bayelsa governorship election.

The apex court held that the application constitutes a gross abuse of judicial process.

On February 13, the Supreme Court affirmed the verdict of a federal high court which disqualified Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo, Lyon’s running mate, for allegedly submitting forged credentials to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

As a result, the court also voided the victory of Lyon on the grounds that both men contested the election on a joint ticket
