I received the verdict of the Supreme Court, declaring the candidate of the @OfficialPDPNig
in the Bayelsa state gubernatorial elections, Senator Douye Diri, as the duly elected Governor of the state, with gladness.
I am not happy at the development in Bayelsa, not one bit. Yes, the PDP is the biggest beneficiary of this judgement but I am pained that once more, the verdict of the people have been overturned by the courts, this time, rightly so. PDP was thrashed at the polls in Bayelsa.
The Supreme Court judgement against Lyon in Bayelsa expressly asked INEC to give the certificate of return to the next party with the highest vote and SPREAD. In Imo, they asserted that Hope had the SPREAD, but guess what? He didn’t! They SC clearly goofed in that Imo judgement.
Let's be clear:
Bayelsa does not compensate for the Injustice done to Imo State and Courts must be guided by the Constitution and not petty political sentiments.
Justice has been done in Bayelsa for anyone who followed the case, but it is no compensation for Imo State.
I celebrate you, my friend and brother, Senator Douye Diri. Your victory at the Supreme Court is a victory for truth and most especially, a victory for the great people of Bayelsa State. I wish you the best as you continue gallantly, the journey of your predecessor.
All PDP members in the Bayelsa House of Assembly that defected to APC after the election MUST lose their seats. The party must use Bayelsa as an example to show discipline.
The fate of David Lyon in Bayelsa per the SC judgement is in line with the law: his deputy presented forged certificates and was rightly disqualified.
And you can't run for governorship alone, so APC had no candidate and PDP won by default.
This should have been Buhari's fate.
The Nigeria Police must move quickly - arrest, investigate and prosecute the FORMER INCOMING Deputy Governor of Bayelsa State cum alleged certificate forger for forgery.
Bayelsa's former Governor-elect David Lyon who has been sacked by Nigeria's Supreme Court a day to his inauguration, won an award for Best Governor of the Year (2019) in January 2020 before even assuming office. https://t.co/ktuB9TOeEq
SUPREME COURT sacks the new BAYELSA GOVERNOR... Power returns to PDP in the State... This hire and fire is serious...
DSP Omo Agege and other APC leaders were already at the airport to fly to Bayelsa for David Lyon’s inauguration. Hotels in Yenogoa all fully booked. In fact, my man Festus Keyamo who is already in Warri preparing to head to Yenogoa, boasted that Dickson would be arrested Monday.
If I were Lyon of Bayelsa, I'll drive my deputy Governorship candidate to Maiduguri and abandon him at the city gates after 6pm.
I congratulate Senator Douye Diri, our party’s candidate in the Bayelsa governorship elections, who is now the governor-elect following the Supreme Court decision, today. I was privileged to serve as the Chairman of the Bayelsa State Governorship Screening Committee in 2019. https://t.co/JTTdSUfkjw
The judiciary is stylishly sanitizing our political system, from Zamfara to Rivers, Imo to Bayelsa, they’re telling the politicians, INEC and the political parties that they must be responsible and play by the rules. And the Buhari government must be commended in all of this
Bayelsa judgement is a preelection matter that has nothing to do with PDP .
This should not be seen to be compensation for Imo, as it was a post election matter that PDP won both in tribunal and Appeal court only for supreme court to award APC.
Justice must prevail in Imo
I love how APC stans here are taking this Bayelsa Supreme Court judgment. No one is lampooning the SC or calling Chief Justice, Ibrahim Tanko unprintable names
That is the MAIN difference between the support base of both parties.
Well done guys.
Most of the APC apologists i have seen were criticizing the APC screening committee that screened the Bayelsa APC governorship aspirants, and not the Supreme Court Judgement.
This is the difference between the Matters that occupy the APC & the PDP.👌🏼
The problem with with PDP winning Bayelsa ( in the supreme court)is that the party won't learn a serious lesson.
Bayelsa's defeat was meant to make PDP sit up
The supreme court happened
PDP hasn't learnt shit, they needed to lose
Sha expect APC to win more states in the SS/SE
Honestly I feel for the Governor-elect of Bayelsa State! If he was the one with fake certificate, I would have dragged him but to pay for the crime of his deputy is so sad.
The law must be obeyed but this is not fair! It should be that the deputy Gov elect that should be sacked!
Deputy Governor elect of your party presented a forged certificate in Bayelsa but is Mary Odili you're all blaming. You people need to check your brain. Did Mary Odili ask him to used a forged certificate?
Please Bayelsa people should not leave David Lyon and his Deputy alone in a room alone today oo, before he kills him to death.
What will now happen to the Best Governor award Bayelsa Governor-Elect got?🤔
A hearty congratulations to Senator Diri Douye and the #Bayelsa @OfficialPDPNig
family over the Supreme Court verdict which declared him the Bayelsa State #Governor-elect.
Single people tomorrow 😂😂 #ValentineIsComing ziyech Mary odili Chelsea Ajax David agba #TachaAfterTach supreme court bayelsa https://t.co/XqfOWCkq4l
Pls lets be reasonable here... Mary odili or no Mary Odili, it ws the right judgment, Pdp nvr argued tht they won the election bcos we all knw Apc beat them hands down in Bayelsa... Pdp only took this case up bcos the deputy to David lyon used forged documents.
De facto Supreme Court -Adams Oshiomhole says no swearing in will take place in Bayelsa tomorrow.
