BREAKING: Court reverses disqualification of Bayelsa deputy governor-elect


An Appeal Court in Abuja has reversed the judgment of a Federal Hight Court disqualifying the Deputy-Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo from participating in the Bayelsa State governorship election on November 16.

This comes as Senator Degi-Eremienyo who is now the deputy governor-elect challenged the High Court verdict that restrained him from taking part in the recently concluded poll.

Justice Iyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court in Abuja had on November 12 disqualified the lawmaker for allegedly supplying false information to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as part of requirement for the governorship poll.
