Irrespective of the judgement of the Federal High Court sitting in Yenagoa, Bayelsans which nullified the governorship primary election of the All Progressives Congress APC, the party has assured the electorate that the candidate of the party, David Lyon is still on the ballot.
Justice Jane Inyang of the federal high court, while ruling on the case brought before him by one of the aspirants, Senator Heineken Lokpobiri, said the primary election of the APC which held on September 4, 2019, and produced David Lyon, was flawed and therefore nullified the election.
The alternate Director General of the David Lyon and Degi Eremienyo Campaign Organization, Prof. Seyefa Brisibe said the judgement has been appealed while a stay of execution has been done.
Describing the ruling as a procured judgement, Brisibe urged Bayelsans not to panic but go ahead to vote the APC and its candidate during the Saturday governorship election.
“Let me use this opportunity to let all Bayelsans and our teaming supporters know that there is no cause for alarm. Our candidates, Chief David Lyon and Bishop Degi Eremienyo are fully, squarely on the ballot.
“This is because, we, as law abiding citizens, have done what is proper, judicious and procedural to see that that judgement does not stand.
“I want to appeal to all Bayelsans in the remotest areas, which our next governor stands for, to come out enmass to vote the APC come November 16.”
Brisibe noted that all through the campaign across the state, the APC candidate enjoyed massive acceptance from the electorate due to their love for him as a result of his philanthropic works.
He said it was clear that the opposition was jittery over the swelling popularity of the APC candidate whom he said was coming to liberate Bayelsans from the shackles of poverty created by the outgoing government.
