The development is coming on Thursday, two days to the November 16 governorship election in Bayelsa State.

Recall that the party suffered a similar major blow on Tuesday when a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja disqualified its deputy governorship candidate, Senator Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo.

Justice Inyang Ekwo ruled that Senator Degi-Eremienyo presented false information in his CF0001 form submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commissioner (INEC) to contest the election.

Justice Ekwo said he found no connection in the name on Degi-Eremienyo’s school-leaving certificate, first degree (BA), Master’s and the affidavits he sworn to correct his name.

Just a few days after the disqualification of the APC deputy governorship candidate, the court has also ruled that the APC has no candidate for the Saturday governorship election in Bayelsa state.
