Bayelsa APC Reacts To The Final Supreme Court Judgement On The State Gov. Election

The Bayelsa State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has appealed to the people of the State, to accept the judgement of the Supreme Court, that nullified its victory at the November 16, 2019, Governorship election.

Speaking in Yenagoa, the State capital, on Thursday, the Chairman of the party, Jothan Amos, said that the party and its sacked Governor-elect, Chief David Lyon, appreciate the confidence reposed in them by the people.

Amos stated that despite how painful the judgement is, party members and the people of the State should accept it in good faith, remain calm, and maintain the peace.

His words: “Let me use this opportunity to extend warm greetings from Chief David Lyon and the headship of the All Progressive Congress, APC. Let me also thank all Bayelsans of the voting age, who sacrificed in their numbers to turn out to vote on 16th November, 2019.

“We are indeed specially honoured and humble to have over three hundred and forty thousand (340,000) votes, that to us demonstrated the change matrix we all yearn and desire.

“You may recall, that on the 13th of February, 2020, the Supreme Court disqualified the APC-ticket and ordered for the immediate swearing-in of Senator Douye Diri and Senator Lawrence Ewrujakpor, as Governor and Deputy Governor, respectively. The news led to pockets of violence across the State, which Chief David Lyon had condemned earlier.

“The party not satisfied with the decision, made an appeal to the same Apex Court, for a review. Yesterday, 26th February, 2020, the Supreme Court expressed its audacity of finality, by upholding her earlier judgement.

“Therefore, let me thank all party faithfuls and Bayelsans for their support, prayers, encouragement, and sacrifice, in the course of the campaigns, through to the election, and even to this present moment.

“Let me also encourage all party faithfuls and Bayelsans in general, to accept the decision of the Supreme Court in good faith, and ensue peace and love.

“As a party, we must unite to uphold peace, to leverage on the love extended to us by Bayelsans, as clearly demonstrated on 16th November, 2020.”
