BREAKING: Bayelsa: Tribunal sacks Gov Diri, orders fresh election

The Bayelsa State Governorship Election Tribunal sitting in Abuja has annulled the election of Duoye Diri, governor of Bayelsa State.

The election was nullified based on a petition by the Advanced Nigeria Democratic Party, which argued that it was unlawfully excluded from participating in the election.

The party argued that it was unlawfully excluded from participating in the poll.

The ruling comes 48 hours after the tribunal dismissed three other petitions.

They were filed by the Alliance for Democracy (AD), the United People’s Congress (UPC) and the Liberation Movement (LM).

However, Diri of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) can appeal the latest judgment.
