JUST IN: Supreme Court Fixes Tuesday For Ihedioha, Lyon Appeals

The Supreme Court will hear the application filed by Emeka Ihedioha and David Lyon over their dismissal by the court by tomorrow  Tuesday, February 18, 2020.

On January 14, 2020, the apex court sacked the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), Ihedioha as governor of Imo state and declared Senator Hope Uzodinma of All Progressive Congress (APC) as the duly elected governor of the state.

Barely a month after, the court again nullified the election of the candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), David Lyon as Governor-elect in Bayelsa state on the ground that his running mate, Biobarakuma Degi-Eriemienyo presented fake certificates to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

While confirming the court’s readiness to hear the cases on Tuesday, Festus Akande, spokesman of the Supreme Court in a chat with TheCable on Saturday, February 15, 2020, disclosed that the appeal of Baysela will also be held that day.

Meanwhile, the PDP candidate in Bayelsa, Douye Diri has since been sworn in as governor of the state.

Diri was sworn in by the state’s Chief Judge, Justice Kate on Friday, February 14, 2020.
