D+DAY BAYELSA: Tribunal set to deliver judgment on Gov. Diri’s election

The atmosphere in Bayelsa State is tensed as the Governorship Election Tribunal sits to deliver judgment on Governor Douye Diri’s election.

Diri’s election is being challenged by Vijah Opuama of the Liberation Movement, Ibiene Stephen of United Peoples Congress and Owei Woniwei of Alliance for Democracy for non compliance with electoral act.

The petitioners are contending that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was not supposed to declare the PDP candidate winner of the election.

Diri had a month ago recorded a resounding victory at Supreme Court after the apex court dismissed an appeal filed by a former aspirant of the Bayelsa governorship election under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Timi Alaibe, challenging the candidacy of Senator Diri in the November 2019 election.
