Bayelsa Governor, Douye Diri to appeal Tribunal Judgement.

Bayelsa State Governor, Senator Douye Diri, says 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.

Governor Diri spoke shortly after the tribunal ruled that the Independent National Electoral Commission wrongly excluded the Advanced Nigeria Democratic Party ANDP governorship candidate from the 16th of November 2019 election.

He said he has implicit confidence in the Judiciary, assuring people of the state that he would triumph in the end.

The governor urged members of the Peoples Democratic Party and his supporters not to panic but to remain calm and law-abiding.
