The supreme Court had in a January 14 judgement that sparked protests nationwide and globally declared Hope Uzodinma, of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the duly elected governor of the state on the grounds that results from 388 polling units were excluded when the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced the final results of the March 9, 2019 governorship election.

Mr. Akanade likewise confirmed that the court will also on Tuesday hear the application of David Lyon, the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Bayelsa state.
