Senator Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo who is the running mate to David Lyon(governorship candidate) under the auspices of All Progressive Congress, has been sacked by a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.
He was disqualified on the ground that he provided false information to the electoral umpire to stand for the election.
Delivering this judgment on Tuesday, Justice Inyang Ekwo, held that Senator Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo gave false information in his CF0001 form submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commissioner (INEC) to contest the election.
Ekwo said he found no nexus in the name on his school-leaving certificate, first degree (BA), Master’s and the affidavits he swore.
The judgment was on a suit by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against the APC governorship candidate, David Lyon, Degi-Eremienyo and INEC, seeking the disqualification of Degi-Eremienyo.
The Bayelsa State Governorship election comes up on Saturday, 16th November 2019.
