Reports have it that the All Progressive Congress Governorship candidate in the November 16 Gubernetorial election in Bayelsa State, David Lyon has been disqualified on Thursday by Justice Jane Inyang of Federal High Court sitting in Bayelsa state.
The election which comes up November 16, on Saturday will hold as scheduled with APC having no flag bearer as presided by Justice Jane Inyang.
This case has been in court after a former Minister of State for Agriculture, Lokpobiri, had approached the court, seeking a declaration, that he, and not David Lyon is the authentic candidate of the APC.
The court on Thursday pronounced that “the governorship primary conducted by the APC in Bayelsa state was not done in compliance with the guidelines and the constitution of the party, and, therefore, the party has no candidate.”
This was disclosed to journalists by Lokpobiri’s lawyer, Fitzgerald Olorogun, immediately after the court ruling
