Following the homecoming of the erstwhile governor-elect of Bayelsa State, Chief David Lyon on Wednesday, the 19th of March 2020 to Bayelsa State, has created a great uproar and pandemonium in Bayelsa State.
Party faithfuls and supporters of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Bayelsa State, on Wednesday the 19th of March 2020, trouped to the residence of Chief David Lyon in their numbers, after news got out that the disqualified governor-elect has arrived his Yenagoa residence since his disqualification.
The charismatic leader in his usual way, thanked the enthusiastic supporters for their show of love and steadfastness to the party and his person.
Saying, their encouragement and prayers for him, gave him the courage to accept the supreme court judgement that disqualified him from being governor of Bayelsa State; believing that it is the will of God.
Chief David Lyon also thanked his teeming supporters for honouring him by refraining from constituting violence as he had instructed.
The cheering crowd in his residence could not hide their admiration for Chief David Lyon and the chorus went…”our governor, the governor of Bayelsa State”.
Meanwhile, the Bayelsa State Department of State Security (DSS) had issued a press statement; warning Bayelsans, especially APC supporters in the state and beyond to desist from calling Chief David Lyon governor of Bayelsa State.
Saying such act is unlawful and illegal, and as such anybody found addressing Chief David Lyon as the governor of Bayelsa State, would be arrested and prosecuted in accordance with the laws of Nigeria.
Few minutes after the DSS released their press statement, many APC supporters through various social media platforms and streets gossips had expressed their disaffection with the purported DSS press statement.
Some vowed to continue to address Chief David Lyon as governor of Bayelsa State, saying that, after all his mandate was stolen. Yet some others said, the man Chief David Lyon, is well loved by the people going by his philanthropic nature over the years even before his emergence as governor-elect of Bayelsa State, thus it will be difficult to refrain from calling him governor of Bayelsa State.
Some others still, have decided to accept their fate believing that 2023 is not too far for Chief David Lyon to reclaim his stolen mandate.
