Appeal Court Reverses Nullification of Diri’s Election as Bayelsa Governor

A five-man panel of Justices of the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja, on Friday, reversed the nullification of the November 16 governorship election that produced Senator Duoye Diri as governor of Bayelsa State.

The five man panel in a unanimous judgment delivered by Justice Obande Ogbunya, held that the majority judgment of the Bayelsa State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, erred in law when it held that the petition of the Advanced Nigerian Democratic Party (ANDP) was not statute barred.

The tribunal had in a two-to-one judgment in August annulled the election of November 16, 2019 Governorship Election in Bayelsa State on the grounds of the exclusion of the ANDP from the poll.
