See photos of APC Bayelsa Gov elect rehearsing his swearing in just hours before Supreme Court annulled his election.
Just few moments back, the supreme court of Nigeria nullified the election of Mr David Lyon. The judgement came barely 24 hours to his inauguration.
A five man panel of the apex court presided by Justice Mary Peter-Odili nullified the election of Lyon on the grounds that his deputy, Senator biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo presented false information to INEC in aid of his qualification for the November 16 governorship election in Bayelsa State.
The apex court ordered INEC to issue fresh certificates to the candidates of the party with the next highest votes and with the required constitutional spread of votes in the results of the election, which are the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidates.
As a result of the judgement, PDP’s Diri Duoye is set to be inaugurated as Governor of Bayelsa state.
Planning for David Lyon’s inaguaration had been put in place, and he was spotted rehearsing for the swearing-in programmed just few hours before the supreme court judgement.
In the photos, we can see him rehearsing how he was to inspect the parade.
