Supreme Court sacks Bayelsa governor-elect’s declares PDP winner
The Supreme Court has repealed the election of the Governor-elect of Bayelsa State today.
The high court nullified the election of the governor-elect David Mark and his running mate.
As a result of this judgment, Diri Duoye becomes the next governor of Bayelsa state.
This is as a result of his wide geographical spread. Justice Ejembi Ekwo delivered the judgment.
According to the apex court, APC’s deputy governorship candidate, Degi-Eremienyo, is an illegitimate candidate in the election because he submitted forged certificates to INEC.
