Bayelsa guber: We can’t denigrate Supreme Court because of you – Adegboruwa tells Lyon

Lagos-based senior lawyer, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, SAN, has reacted to the Supreme Court judgement that upheld the sack of former All Progressives Congress, APC governor-elect in Bayelsa State, David Lyon.

Following his sack a day to the swearing-in ceremony, Lyon and his party, the APC, had returned to the apex court, asking the court to reverse its earlier ruling.

But the court described the request by the APC to review its judgment voiding the participation of its candidate in the Bayelsa governorship election as vexatious, frivolous and an abuse of the court.

It also slammed N60m fine against Afe Babalola, Olanipekun.

Reacting to the court’s decision in a statement he signed and made available to DAILY POST on Wednesday, Adegboruwa said, “Bravo to the Supreme Court.
