BREAKING: Bayelsa: Court of Appeal rules on Gov Diri’s sack

The Court of Appeal has set aside the judgment that nullified the election of Douye Diri as Bayelsa State Governor.
Recall that the Bayelsa State Gubernatorial Petition Tribunal had sacked Governor Douye Diri on August 17.
Diri’s election was nullified due to a petition by the Advanced Nigeria Democratic Party (ANDP) that it was unlawfully excluded from participating in the poll.
The tribunal, therefore ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a fresh election within 90 days.
