SUPREME COURT TO HEAR APC’S REQUEST FOR BAYELSA STATE JUDGMENT REVIEW ON WEDNESDAY
Written by darling on February 24, 2020
Supreme Court has fixed Wednesday 26th February for the hearing of the All Progressives Congress’ application for a review of its 13thFebruary 2020 judgment which overturned its victory in the last governorship election in Bayelsa State.
The five-man panel of the court led by Justice MARY PETER-ODILI disqualified DEGI-EREMIENYO’S candidacy and ruled that the disqualification had rendered the joint ticket held by him and the governorship candidate a nullity.
The disputed apex court’s judgment was delivered barely 24 hours to the inauguration of the party’s governorship candidate, DAVID LYON, and his running mate, BIOBARAKUMA DEGI-EREMIENYO, scheduled to hold on 14th February.
The former deputy governor-elect was said to have presented certificates with different names and inconsistent with the name on the Form CF.001 submitted to INEC.
