The Court of Appeal sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, has ruled that a former Governor of Bayelsa State, Senator Seriake Dickson, has a case to answer in a suit seeking to disqualify him from contesting the concluded Bayelsa West Senatorial election.

The three-man panel of the court also disagreed with the Federal High Court’s decision to dismiss the matter saying the judgement of the lower court was wrong.

The panel presided over by Justice U. Onyemenam, ordered the suit to be reassigned to another Federal High Court judge.
