After Lose At The Supreme Court Review Appeal, Lyon, APC To Pay N10m Cost

POLITICS
David Lyon and the All Progressives Congress have lost their bids to overturn the Supreme Court ruling of 13 February, which sacked Lyon as the duly elected governor of Bayelsa state. In a ruling today, the court dismissed the applications for review of the judgment, which rendered Lyon’s election invalid because of what the five-man panel of justices attributed to the alleged certificate forgery committed by Lyon’s running mate,Senator Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo.

The supreme court has struck out the application of the All Progressive Congress (APC) seeking a reversal of the judgment which sacked David Lyon as winner of the Bayelsa governorship election. The apex court held that the application constitutes a gross abuse of judicial process. On February 13, the supreme court affirmed the verdict of a federal high court which disqualified Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo, Lyon’s running mate, for allegedly submitting forged credentials to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). As a result, the court also voided the victory of Lyon on the grounds that both men contested the election on a joint ticket. More to follow…

It Is Not The Work Of The Military To Fight Boko Haram, Its A Work For Civilians – Buratai

BOKO HARAM
The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt. General Tukur Buratai, has stated that the war against Boko Haram could not be won by military might due to series of indoctrination that have been carried out in the north for more than two decades. Buratai said that only 25 per cent of the war falls within the ambit of the military. The rest, according to him, is for the civil populace to handle. He made these declarations yesterday in Lagos during the 2020 Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) Security Meets Business Dialogue. Buratai stated that: “We are fighting the mind.

On counts one and two, Metuh bagged seven years each; on count three, five years; count four, seven years; counts five and six, three years each and he got seven years for count 7.
