The Minister of State for Labour and Productivity, Festus Keyamo, SAN, has commended the Supreme Court judgment which sacked David Lyon as Bayelsa State governor-elect.
The judgement which was declared on Thursday declared Duoye Diri of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, winner of the gubernatorial election in Bayelsa.
He has since been handed a certificate of return by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, and sworn-in as governor of the state.
Commending the Supreme Court judgment, Keyamo stated that it is best for his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, to look within to prevent such from occuring again.
Taking to Twitter, Keyamo wrote: “The Supreme Court has been firm and resolute so far regarding pre-election cases and Election Petitions. I commend their lordships.
“As a party, we have to look at our own internal party mechanisms that make us give our victories needlessly away to the opposition and take appropriate actions.”
