Diri reacts to Bayelsa Tribunal Ruling, instructs lawyers to appeal

YENAGOA – BAYELSA State Governor, Senator Douye Diri, has said he will appeal the ruling of the state election petition tribunal sitting in Abuja and has consequently instructed his lawyers to file the necessary papers.

Diri spoke shortly after the tribunal ruled that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) wrongly excluded the Advanced Nigeria Democratic Party (ANDP) governorship candidate in the November 16, 2019 election.

The governor in a statement by his Acting Chief Press Secretary, Daniel Alabrah, said he has implicit confidence in the judiciary that he would triumph in the end.
