Mr. Seriake Dickson of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was on Tuesday, declared the validly elected Governor of Bayelsa State by the Supreme Court.

The seven-member panel of judges gave the ruling following an appeal by Timipre Sylva, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Bayelsa State governorship election.

Recall that the election tribunal and the Court of Appeal had earlier upheld the election of Dickson as governor of Bayelsa State, but Sylva went ahead to file an appeal against the judgment at the apex court.

However, the panel led by Justice Tanko Muhammad, in a unanimous decision dismissed the appeal filed by the APC and its candidate against the state’s governorship poll on the grounds that it was lacking in merit.
