An Appeal Court sitting in Port Harcourt has ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to allow the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, David Lyon participate in the November 16 Bayelsa governorship election.

The court gave the order on Friday after setting aside the judgement of the Federal High Court in Yenagoa following the motion ex-parte filed by the lawyers of the APC candidate, Lyon.

It also ruled that Lyon remained the APC candidate for the Bayelsa gubernatorial election pending the determination of an appeal he filed against the judgement of Justice Jane Inyang, The Nation reports.
