OrderPaperToday – The Supreme Court of Nigeria has declared candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the Bayelsa governorship election, Sen. Diri Duoye winner of the November 16, 2019 elections.

Justice Mary Peter-Odili who led the panel of justices nullified the election of David Lyon, All Progressives Congress’ candidates who was earlier declared winner because his deputy, Sen. Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo, presented false information to INEC.

The Supreme Court has ordered INEC to withdraw the certificate of return earlier issued to Lyon and hand it over to the candidate of the party with the next highest votes, which is the PDP.
