The All Progressives Congress, APC, has broken silence over the Supreme Court ruling on the Bayelsa gubernatorial election.
The ruling sacked its candidate David Lyon as governor-elect and declared Duoye Diri of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as governor of Bayelsa State.
The APC has now broken silence over the ruling by advising the people of the state to accept the judgment.
The chairman of the APC, Jonathan Amos in the state made this known while addressing newsmen.
“We are indeed specially honoured and humble to have over three hundred and forty thousand (340,000) votes, that to us demonstrated the change matrix we all yearn and desire.
“You may recall that on the 13th of February 2020, the supreme Court disqualified the APC-ticket and ordered for immediate swearing-in of Senator Douye Diri and Senator Lawrence Ewrujakpor as Governor and Deputy Governor respectively. The new news led to pockets of violence across the state which Chief David Lyon had condemned earlier.
“The party not satisfied with the decision made an appeal to the same Apex Court for a review. Yesterday, 26th February, 2020, the Supreme Court expressed its audacity of finality by upholding her earlier judgement.
“Therefore, let me thank all party faithfuls and Bayelsans for their support, prayers, encouragement and sacrifice in the course of the campaigns throughout the election and even to this present moment.
“Let me also encourage all party faithful and Bayelsans in general to accept the decision of the Supreme Court in good faith and ensue peace and love.
