Breaking: Lyon beats Lokpobiri at Supreme Court, becomes Bayelsa governor

The Supreme Court in a unanimous decision on Tuesday affirmed the nomination of Mr. David Lyon as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and upheld his victory as Governor-elect of Bayelsa State, striking out an appeal by former Minister of State for Agriculture, Heineken Lokpobiri.

The five-man panel upheld the decision of the court of the appeal which ruled that Lokpobiri’s appeal against the outcome of the September 4, 2019 primary of the APC was filed out of the time allowed by law.

Lokpobiri had asked the apex court to declare him the candidate of the party and governor-elect.
