Supreme Court confirms Diri as Bayelsa gov


The Supreme Court on Tuesday confirmed Duoye Diri as the duly elected governor of Bayelsa State.

It threw out an appeal by Timi Alaibe which sought to nullify the governor’s nomination as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party over the participation of two delegates in the primaries.

Alaibe had lost at different levels in court but continued to the apex court where his quest to oust Diri finally ended.
