The candidate, All Progressives Congress, in April 2015 Bayelsa State House of Assembly election, Mr. Ebifaghe Orunimighe, has asked the Assembly Speaker, Mr. Kombowei Benson, to respect the judgment of Court of Appeal.
The Court of Appeal sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, had on December 9, 2015 nullified the April 2015 election that returned Benson and ordered a fresh election within 90 days from the date of the judgment.
Orunimighe, who contested the Southern Ijaw Constituency 4 seat with the Speaker, warned Benson to stop parading himself as Speaker or risk going to prison.
Orunimighe, at a news conference at the APC Secretariat in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State capital, on Monday, entitled, ‘Contemptuous conduct of Kombowei Benson – former Speaker’, noted that his lawyers had begun a contempt process against Benson.
