The All Progressives Congress, APC candidate in the last Bayelsa State governorship election, Mr. David Lyon has rejected the Supreme Court judgment that on inauguration eve barred him from assuming the governorship.
At a press conference where he was represented by a member of the House of Representatives, Rep. Preye Oseke, APC, Southern Ijaw Federal Constituency, Lyon said the judgment was bought and was not reflective of the opinion of the people of Bayelsa State who he said made him governor.
“It is a procured judgment. 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 (INEC) not to issue certificate of return to the candidate of the the PDP because he was unable to score the required 25 per cent in the two third of the local government area.
“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.”
