Bayelsa Governorship Election: INEC reacts to court judgement disqualifying APC Governorship candidate, David Lyon

The Independent and National Electoral Commission (INEC) has reacted to the disqualification of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, David Lyon ahead of the Governorship election scheduled to hold on Saturday November 16. 

 

   
   

It was reported earlier that Justice Jane Inyang of the Federal High Court in Yenegoa, sacked David Lyon on grounds of the party’s governorship primary election not being conducted according to the constitution of the party. 

 

Sarian Dangosu, INEC publicity secretary in Bayelsa who reacted to the court judgement said the governorship election in the state will still hold. 

 

“The court did not say INEC should stop the election”, said Sarian Dangosu.

“The court only said those who do not have candidates will be disallowed therefore, the other 43 candidates will go to the polls,” she added. 

 

   
   

The court judgement came after the federal High Court in Abuja disqualified Mr Lyon’s running mate, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo from participating in the election for presenting conflicting information to the electoral commission.
