The Supreme Court today upheld its decision of nullifying the election of David Lyon as Governor-elect of Bayelsa state and reconfirmed Douye Diri as winner of the November 2019 state governorship election.

On February 13th, the apex court nullified the election of Lyon and his Deputy on the grounds that the latter ran for the election using forged certificates.

Dissatisfied by the ruling, the APC filed for a review of the verdict by the court. 

While delivering judgement earlier today, the Supreme court justices led by Justice Amina Augie, held that the application filed by the APC for the review of the court’s judgement, lacked merit, and that the decision of the court is final. She added that the applicants failed to point out errors and added that no court on earth can review the judgment.
