APC candidate in Bayelsa State, David Lyon has shared his reaction to the court throwing out his call for a review of its November 16 governorship election judgment in the state.
David Lyon said he has accepted the result for peace and development to reign in the state.
He thanked his party for their support and appreciated his supporters and Bayelsans for backing him to fight against a case of judgment without justice.
He then begged everyone that remains solidly behind him to avoid all kinds of violence that will threaten the unity and calm in the state.
His words, “I am aware of the extent to which this decision has further dashed the hope of Bayelsans as it upturned the democratic mandate of the Bayelsa electorate.
“I hereby unequivocally state my decision to accept the Supreme Court verdict however distressing as it is.
“I wish to appeal to my party faithful, my supporters, all Bayelsans and all lovers of peace and justice to accept this verdict and maintain the peace.
“While they have a right to think that this is a case of judgment without justice, I strongly appeal against all forms of violence or any conduct that threatens the peace and development of our state.
“I seize this opportunity to thank the leadership of our party, the All Progressives Congress at the National, State , local Government and ward levels for their tenacity in upholding the ideals of constitutional democracy.
“I appeal to all Bayelsans not to shy away from participating in the governance of our dear state for the common good and wellbeing of its people.
“In the same vain, I urge the good people of the state to continue to uphold the dreams of our founding fathers in our aspiration to lead the state irrespective of party affiliations.”
