Bayelsa: PDP Reacts To Supreme Court Judgement

PDP Rejects Hate Speech Bill

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in its reaction to the Supreme Court judgment that sacked the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bayelsa state, David Lyon and his deputy, Senator Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo, says the February 13 verdict that declared its candidate, Duoye Diri the winner of the election is the handiwork of God.

PDP National Vice Chairman (South-South), Emmanuel Ogidi, made this known on Wednesday in an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today.

In his words: “It is the hand of work. Everything we do is the hand of God because you are holding the power on behalf of God.

“The position of the governor of a state has the power of life and death because once a judge passes judgment, it is the governor that will sign. Yes, we as politicians we play everything, we do everything by the rules. We go for elections; we go for elections, but it is God that decides who will win.”

Ogidi’s comments come shortly after the Apex Court on Wednesday dismissed an application for a review of the February 13 judgment.

In her ruling today, Justice Amina Augie said the application lacked merit and the decisions of the court are final.
