Mixed reactions trailed the nullification of the election of Bayelsa state All Progressives Congress governorship candidate, David Lyon, as he prepares to be sworn-in on Friday.

The Supreme Court had disqualified Lyon’s deputy, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo for presenting false information to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in aid of his qualification for the November 16 governorship election in State.

Degi-Eremienyo’s disqualification affected Lyon, whose victory was nullified by the apex court on Thursday.

The court ordered that fresh Certificates of Return should be issued to his opponent, Senator Douye Diri of the People’s Democratic Party.

Twitter users are expressing shock at the development due to the fact that Lyon was to be inaugurated in less than 24 hours.
