The Supreme court earlier this afternoon helped in perfecting the earlier game plan of the outgoing Governor of Bayelsa State His Excellency Henry Seriake Dickson, with the sack of David Lyon as the Governorship candidate of the All progressive Congress (APC) in the 2019 Governorship election in the state, after INEC in November 2019 declared David Lyon as the dully elected Governor of Bayelsa state.
It all started when Governor Dickson nominated former senator representing Bayelsa Central Senatorial district in the national Assembly Senator Douye Diri against the wish of the former Goodluck Jonathan and other stakeholders of the party in Bayelsa who opted for Tim Alaibe who was a former aide to president Jonathan, both candidate are from Bayelsa west senatorial district, whose turn was to produce a Governor.
The scripted played out fully when he also nominated Senator Diri running mate Senator Ewhrudjakpo Lawrence who is from Bayelsa west senatorial district, the same senatorial district with him, with a clear move of replacing him at the senate once they win the Bayelsa Guber election.
with the verdict of the supreme court, Dickson who was once a House of Rep member will now seek to replace Senator lawrence at the Senate later in the year.
Sometime in 2013 the Governor once said ‘ One day i will find my way back to the national assembly” is the time now?
