Bayelsa: APC reacts to attack on Justice Odili’s residence

The Bayelsa State Youth wing of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted over the attacked of the Supreme Court Justice, Mary Peter-Odili at her residence in Abuja.

The APC youth wing condemned what they’ve described as the continued assault on the Justices of the Supreme Court.

Recall that, a five-man panel of the Supreme Court led by Justice Odili had sacked Bayelsa governor-elect, David Lyon, candidate of the APC who was declared winner of the election in the state in the last year November.

Lyon sacked because of the Degi-Eremieoyo, his running mate who forged certificate and ordered for the withdrawal of his Certificate of Return and issuance of same to Douye Diri who came second in November polls.

Diri was sworn-in on Friday, February 14, along with his Deputy, Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo.

Meanwhile, APC group had protest on Tuesday, February 18, at the residence of a justice of the Supreme Court, Mary Peter-Odili, in Abuja.

The protesters held placards berating the judge for the decision on the governorship election in Bayelsa State on February 13, 2020.

Reacting to the development, the APC youths under the aegis of Bayelsa APC Youth Vanguard for Real Change, asked the party leadership to blame itself for presenting candidates with forged credentials for the elections.

Spokesman of the group, Comrade Johnson Dume said that the APC leadership under Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, rather than grandstand, should apologise to its teeming supporters for the “monumental embarrassment” that the nomination had caused them.

The youth leader asked APC faithful to also hold the Minister of State for Petroleum, Chief Timipre Sylva, responsible for the party’s loss at the court.

According to him, Sylva knew about Degi’s forged documents but still went ahead to field him, so that the party would lose.
