Supreme Court judgment would have nullified elec
National Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC) Adams Oshiomhole has faulted the Supreme Court judgment declaring the candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Douye Diri as new Governor-elect in Bayelsa.
Oshiomhole said this at a news conference in Abuja on Thursday while reacting to the apex court judgment.
He said the court would have borrowed a similar case that nullified governorship election in Bauchi.
「In 1999, there was a similar case in Bauchi involving Gov. Adamu Muazu.
「The court found out that the running mate was not qualified for whatever reason to contest that election and accordingly the supreme court nullified the election of Gov Muazu.
「And the court as a consequence directed Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a fresh election.
「I believe it is still the same supreme court and therefore we have asked our lawyers to exploit all lawful legal windows to ensure that Bayelsa people have a governor of their choice.
「Let me also say that it is not a state secret.标签：
