UPDATED: Federal High court disqualifies Bayelsa APC guber candidates from participating in November 16 election (see court documents)

The Peoples Democratic Party is set to go to the November 16 Bayelsa governorship election without the APC as the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has disqualified the governorship and deputy governorship candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC), David Lyon and his running mate from participating in the election.

The election which is billed to hold on Saturday has APC and PDP as the principal actors in the race to the Creek Haven. But following the court ruling, APC has been removed from participating in the election.

The court cited false information as provided by the deputy governorship candidate with respect to his first school leaving certificate.
