BREAKING: PDP’s Diri can’t be sworn-in as Bayelsa Governor

National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole today declared candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senator Douye Diri cannot be sworn in on Friday tomorrow) as Bayelsa Governor because he did not meet the requirements of the Supreme Court.

Oshiomhole pointed out the judgement of the Supreme Court said the certificate of return should be issued to the candidate, who has the required spread in the election aside from David Lyon.

He said there was no candidate in the election that met the requirement apart from Lyon, adding that the implication is that from Friday Bayelsa will be without a Governor.

The APC Chairman said no one will be sworn in as governor in Bayelsa on Friday because David Lyon is the only candidate who has the constitutional spread to be sworn in as governor.

“No other candidate has the constitutional spread to be sworn in as governor; the judgement lacks fruit of justice.

“Our lawyers are already studying the judgment to take the necessary legal action,” Oshiomhole said.
