BREAKING: Nobody can be sworn in as Bayelsa Gov tomorrow – Oshiomhole vows

The former Edo State governor and the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, on Thursday, February 13, has vowed that no one will be sworn in on Friday as Bayelsa Governor.

Oshiomhole said that the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Senator Douye Diri cannot be sworn in on Friday as Bayelsa Governor because he did not meet the requirements of the Supreme Court.

Oshiomhole has said the Supreme Court’s judgment annulling the party’s victory in Bayelsa State lacks the fruit of justice.

Oshiomhole pointed out the judgement of the Supreme Court said the certificate of return should be issued to the candidate, who has the required spread in the election aside from David Lyon.

He said there was no candidate in the election that met the requirement apart from Lyon, adding that the implication is that from Friday Bayelsa will be without a Governor.

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