APC demands for fresh election in Bayelsa.

Download latest 2020 songs from betajamz.com.ng.
 The All Progressives Congress (APC) has written the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), urging the electoral body to conduct a fresh governorship election in Bayelsa state. 

Recall that the Supreme Court sacked the candidate of the APC, David Lyon as winner of the governorship election in Bayelsa State and replaced him with candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Duoye Diri who scored the second highest vote in the election. 
However in a letter written by the chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole and addressed to INEC, the electoral commission was urged to conduct a new election because according to them, Diri did not meet the requirement needed for him to become Governor of the State.

The letter read; 

‘‘In the said judgement of the Supreme Court, the candidature of our governorship and deputy governorship candidates were nullified and the commission was ordered to issue fresh certificate of returns with the highest number of votes and with the required geographical spread. 
‘’It is however to be noted that the Supreme Court did not void the votes that our party polled at the election and the implication of this is that the votes of the All Progressives Congress must be reckoned with in determining whether any other candidate polled majority of lawful votes cast in one-quarter of at least two thirds majority of the state.
‘‘We have reviewed the judgement of the Supreme Court and we are of the firm opinion that the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party cannot be issued certificate of return and or sworn in as the Governor and Deputy Governor of Bayelsa State respectively.
‘‘We are aware of that section 179(1)(b) of the 1999 constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria mandatorily requires a candidate for an election to the office of governor of a state to have not less than one quarter of the votes cast at the election in each of at least two thirds of all the local government areas in the state before the candidate can be deemed to have been duly elected as the Governor of the State. This mandatory requirement was affirmed by the supreme court in the judgement under reference.
“From the results announced and duly published by the commission, it is clear that no candidates meet this mandatory constitutional requirement, including the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party who only managed to poll one quarter of the votes cast in only five local government areas.
“The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party or any other candidate whatsoever, none satisfies the requirement of one quarter of the votes cast in at least 2/3 of the local government areas in the state as required by the supreme court judgement further request that a fresh election be conducted by the commission for the office of the Executive Governor of Bayelsa State.”

The Supreme Court has sacked the governor-elect of Bayelsa State, David Lyon, of APC and his Deputy, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremieoyo.

The five-man panel of the apex court led by Justice Mary Peter-Odili in its ruling delivered today Thursday February 13th, annuled the election on grounds that the deputy governor-elect, Degi-Eremieoyo, ran for the election with forged certificates.
The court has ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to withdraw the certificate of Return issued to the APC Candidates as the winners of the November 16th 2019 governorship election in the state and issue fresh certificates to the candidates of the PDP, Douye Diri who reportedly scored the next highest number of votes during the election.

This judgement comes barely a month after the Supreme court annulled the election of PDP's Emeka Ihedioha in Imo state and instated Hope Uzodinma of the APC.

Natasha Akpoti calls for cancellation of election in kogi central, Lokoja

The Governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party in Kogi State, Natasha Akpoti, has called for the cancellation of the elections in Kogi Central and parts of Lokoja, the state capital.
Akpoti wants the Independent National Electoral Commission to cancel the elections in the areas and hold a rerun on the grounds that “what happened in Kogi Central and other parts of the state was a far cry from a credible election”.
“Ballot boxes were destroyed and burnt in Okene, Adavi, Ajaokuta and Ogori Magongo and Okehi Local government areas and other parts of the state,” she said in the statement on Sunday.
“Our agents were chased away from the various polling units of the Kogi Central Senatorial District.”
For Akpoti, these incidents were enough to make INEC take drastic action.
“I am therefore calling on you and in line with your powers as enshrined in the Electoral Act, 2010 as amended to cancel the election in Kogi Central Senatorial District and some part of Lokoja and order for a rerun,” she said.
Saturday’s election had been marked by reports of violence, thuggery, harassment and intimidation with INEC condemning those incidents.
The electoral umpire had, however, said in a statement on Saturday that most of those who wanted to vote got to do so.
For Akpoti and her party’s agents and supporters, it was a different story, according to her statement.
“In some polling units, our agents were tied with ropes by APC-led thugs,” she said.
She also alleged that gun-wielding thugs supporting the APC did not allow SDP agents in Okene to come near the polling units. These thugs, she added, told voters not to come and vote unless they were to vote only APC.
