Recall that Oshiomhole had vowed that no one would be sworn in as governor today. He explained that by the judgment, no one will be sworn in as governor in Bayelsa, because aside from the candidate of the APC, David Lyon, no other candidate has the constitutional spread to be sworn in as governor.

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