The Supreme Court has dismissed the appeal filed by the All Progressives Congress’ candidate in the last governorship election in Bayelsa State, Timipre Sylva.
The apex court upheld the election of the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate, Governor Seriake Dickson, who was returned as the winner of the poll by INEC.

Also on Tuesday, Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun, who is also a member of the Supreme Court panel, dismissed a cross-appeal filed by Dickson challenging some aspects of the judgment of the Court of Appeal on the Bayelsa State election.
