Bayelsa: How Nigerians Reacted to Supreme Court’s Judgement that Sacked Lyon

Following Thursday’s Supreme Court verdict which nullified the victory of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), David Lyon in the November 16, 2019 Bayelsa state gubernatorial election, Nigerians took to social media to react to the ruling of the apex court. 

Some welcomed the judgement, arguing that it was the right thing to do after Lyon’s running mate, Degi-Eremienyo was discovered to have submitted forged academic certificates. Others blamed the APC screening committee for failing to spot the discrepancies in Eremienyo’s documents which were later submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
