BREAKING: Tribunal affirms Diri as Bayelsa governor

The Bayelsa State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja has on Monday upheld the election that produced Governor Douye Diri as the Executive Governor of Bayelsa State.

A three-man panel led by Justice Adekunle Adeleye dismissed the petition filed by the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Timipre Sylva, and the party for lacking in merit.

The Tribunal in an unanimous decision held that the petitioners failed to prove any credible evidence to back up any of the allegations they raised against the re-election victory of Diri.

Allnews.ng can recall that Diri is a second term Governor of Bayelsa both under the umbrella of the Peoples Democratic Party.
