According to him, Diri did not meet up with the requirements of the Supreme Court, adding that the Apex court has said that the certificate of return should only be issued to the candidate, who has the highest polls in the election and has met up with all other requirements aside his candidate, David Lyon.

“there was no candidate in the election that met the requirement apart from Lyon, the implication is that as from Friday, Bayelsa will be without a Governor,” Oshiomhole was quoted saying this.
