The Supreme court of Nigeria sacked Mr Lyon on Thursday on the grounds that his deputy, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo, presented a false certificate to the electoral body, INEC, in the build-up to the election.
However in response to the judgment the angry APC chairman Adams Oshiomhole, said
Where justice and democracy thrive on the altar of technicalities, it constitutes a danger to our democracy. Nobody has raised issues whether David Lyon and his running mates won an overwhelming majority,” he said at the party’s secretariat Thursday evening.
“Therefore, from the facts available to us and in due consultation with our lawyers, it is clear that no candidate meets the requirements of the Supreme Court, which means no one can be sworn in legally tomorrow unless there is deliberate attempt to abuse the legal process.
“We have accordingly asked our lawyers to look at all the windows that exist in law and take steps to ensure that the will of the people of Bayelsa State is not undermined on the altar of technicalities,” he said.
It’s very funny and ridiculous to see Mr Adams Oshiomhole vent this way about the judgement. okmlonah.com ask Nigerians to tell Justice Oshiomhole that, he can’t eat his cake in IMO and have it in Bayelsa.
I could remember when a ridiculous judgement was given against the PDP candidate in Imo State Mr Oshiomhole was among the 1st of people that congratulated Hope Uzodinma and praised thesame supreme Court to high heavens.
Nothing dey happen, Nigeria democracy is not in danger joor game on…..
