Supreme Court Fixes Date For Bayelsa Governorship Judgment Review


The Supreme Court has fixed Wednesday, February 26 to hear an application filed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) seeking a review of its February 13 judgement that sacked the Governor-elect, David Lyon and his running mate, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo.

The APC lead counsel, Wole Olanipekun (SAN) had, on February 20, filed an application before the Supreme Court contending that the apex court gave a wrong interpretation to the judgement of the Federal High Court in Abuja which was affirmed in the February 13, 2020 apex court’s verdict.

It was gathered that parties in the suit have been served with hearing notice.

Lyon was sacked by the apex court after his running mate, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo was discovered to have presented false information about his educational qualifications in his Form CF001 submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as a candidate for the 2019 election.
