The supreme court has fixed Tuesday for hearing of the application filed by David Lyon, the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Bayelsa state.
Festus Akande, spokesman of the supreme court, confirmed the development, TheCable reports.
“Yes it is true. The appeal of Baysela will also be held that day (Tuesday),” he said over the phone.
This comes barely 48 hours after Douye Diri, Lyon’s PDP rival, was sworn in as governor of Bayelsa.
The Supreme court had sacked Lyon on the grounds that Biobarakuma Degi-Eriemienyo, his running mate, presented forged certificate.
