The Supreme Court on Tuesday has ruled in favour of David Lyon as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress during the November 2019 gubernatorial election in Bayelsa State.
The apex court dismissed the appeal filed by Senator Heineken Lokpobiri for lacking in merit.
In a unanimous judgment delivered by Justice Inyang Okoro, the apex court held that the lower court was right in its decision as Senator Lokpobiri filed his petition outside the 14 days allowed by law.

A 5-man panel of the court insists that the cause of action complained about by Senator Lokpobiri occurred on the 4th of September 2019 and not 7th as claimed in his petition which was clearly filed out of time.
