Governor Duoye Diri Appeal Court's Judgement

 

Governor Duoye Diri of Bayelsa State says he has instructed his lawyers to file an appeal against the ruling of the state governorship election tribunal that nullified his election into office.

 

The tribunal sitting in Abuja, today August 17, nullified Diri's election and ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC to conduct a bye-election in 90 days. The tribunal ruled that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)wrongly excluded the Advanced Nigeria Democratic Party (ANDP) governorship candidate from the November 16, 2019 election.

 

Speaking after the ruling, Governor Diri said he trusts that the court through his appeal will affirm his election.

 

“We trust in the judiciary and we are appealing the judgment. With God on our side, we will get justice. This is a court of first instance and I have instructed our lawyers to file an appeal. We have a right of appeal even up to the Supreme Court.” he said

 

The governor urged members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and his supporters not to panic and to continue to remain calm and law-abiding.
