As a result of the ruling, a podium being erected at the Samson Siasia Sport Complex venue of the swearing-in of Lyon was immediately dismantled as soon as news of the judgment broke.

The flags of APC earlier erected at the roundabout in front of the Government House, Yenagoa, were uprooted by PDP supporters.

Also at the APC secretariat, canopies already mounted ahead of Friday’s celebration were dismantled.

It was gathered that the leaders of the APC had booked major hotel accommodation for visiting guests ahead of the ceremony.

Some of the guests were said to have started arriving in the state capital before the nullification of the governor-elect’s election.

A hotel manager in Ekeki area of Yenagoa, who confided in one of our correspondents, said they might refund money to those who booked for rooms but their guests had not checked in while there would be negotiation for rooms that guests had moved in.
