Presiding Justice Jane Nyang of the Federal High Court dismissed the APC suit for lack of jurisdiction.
She also ruled that the suit filed by one Eneoriekumoh Owoupele was brought to the court after the stipulated time for such an action.
The Federal High Court sitting in Yenagoa has dismissed a case filed by the All Progressive Congress, APC, against former Governor and Peoples Democratic Party Candidate for the Bayelsa West Senatorial District, Chief Henry Seriake Dickson.
Owoupele, through his lawyer, Mr. AO Aniso, was seeking to disqualify Chief Dickson from participating in the election for alleged supply of false information to the Indepndent National Electoral Commission.
The judge, however, ruled that the case was statute barred as the prescribed period for litigation had passed. The judge subsequently dismissed it.
