The Court of Appeal in Owerri, Imo State, has affirmed Duoye Diri as governor of Bayelsa State.

Delivering its judgment on Tuesday, May 12, 2020, the court dismissed a suit filed by former Bayelsa governorship aspirant under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Timi Alaibe, challenging the emergence of Diri as the legitimate winner of the PDP primaries held on September 3, 2019.

Alaibe had dragged the governor and the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to court over what he described as a ‘flawed process’ of the PDP primary.

But the court dismissed the suit for lacking in merit and upheld an earlier judgment of a Federal High Court in Owerri.
