Court Of Appeal Affirms Diri As Bayelsa State Governor by Preciousbussy: 6:22 pm On October 02, 2020
The court of Appeal on Friday affirmed Douye Diri as governor of Bayelsa State.

The majority judgement of the Governorship Election Tribunal which sacked Diri was overturned by a five-man panel of the appellate court led by Adriza Mshella in two unanimous judgements.

The court held that the petition filed by the candidate of the Advanced Nigeria Democratic Party, Lucky King-George at the lower tribunal was statute-barred.

Two out of three judges had upheld the petition filed by the ANDP candidate in a split judgement on August 17. This was done on grounds that it was wrong for INEC to have excluded the party from the governorship election held on the 16th of November, 2019.

The Independent National Electoral Commission was mandated by the tribunal to conduct a fresh poll within 90 days in the state.

The five-man panel of the appellate court, while delivering judgement in Abuja on Friday upheld the Appeal of Duoye Diri.
