The Supreme Court has nailed the coffin, the tension surrounding the revision of its February 13 judgment destroys the governmental election victory of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state of Bayelsa.
The Supreme Court urged David Lyon to remain fired from APC and claims that lawsuits should end.
The final judgment of the Supreme Court meant that Senator Douye Diri of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who had been sworn in as Governor of Bayelsa since February 14, would lead the state for the next four years.
Immediately after the verdict, the direct governor of the past, Seriake Dickson, the incumbent governor, Diri, the state president, PDP, Cleopas Moses, and other proponents of the PDP were seen worshiping songs at Dickson’s Abuja residence.
Dickson led his loyalists and political godson Diri in most songs, while Major Lance and Cleaopas closed the emergency worship session in prayers.
They all knelt down for more than 20 minutes and sang and prayed to thank God for the final judgment of the court and the victory of the PDP, which they described as a miracle.
The camp of the APC and its leaders, however, were left in shock at the decision of the Supreme Court to dismiss its request for a review.
The APC leaders wore long faces and their camp was silent after the Supreme Court decision.
The dismissed deputy governor, Degi Erimienyo, on whose behalf APC lost Bayelsa, was in court near the APC national president, Adams Oshiomhole.
However, the leaders of the PDP were seen in wild jubilation, shouting and dancing to mark the end of the lawsuit that caused tension in the state, The Nation reports.
