Recall that Oshiomhole had vowed that no one would be sworn in as governor today. He explained that by the judgment, no one will be sworn in as governor in Bayelsa, because aside from the candidate of the APC, David Lyon, no other candidate has the constitutional spread to be sworn in as governor.

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

Supreme Court yesterday sacked the governor-elect of Bayelsa State, David Lyon, and his Deputy, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremieoyo over fake certificate and through a five-man panel of the apex court led by Justice Mary Peter-Odili ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to issue a Certificate of Return to Douye Diri of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
