Edo PDP hails S/Court judgement on Bayelsa governorship



The Edo chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday in Benin hailed the supreme court judgement on the Bayelsa governorship election.

In an interview with Nigeria News Agency , Chief Dan Orbih, Chairman of the party in the state hailed the judgement which sacked Bayelsa Governor elect, David Lyon of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Orbih said that the judgement was a welcome development for Nigeria’s democracy.

He therefore wished the good people of Bayelsa, the government and the PDP family a successful inauguration as they form the state government to take the Oil rich state to higher height.

The Supreme Court had on Thursday nullified the election of Bayelsa State governor-elect David Lyon and his deputy-elect Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo.

Lyon was expected to be inaugurated as the Bayelsa Governorship this Friday.

The supreme court however sacked him for contesting the election on a joint ticket with Degi-Eremienyo, whom it accused of certificate forgery.
