The Bayelsa State Gubernatorial Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has nullified the election of Governor Duoye Diri.
The Bayelsa State Gubernatorial Petition Tribunal passed the judgment on Monday.
The election was nullified based on a petition by the Advanced Nigeria Democratic Party, which argued that it was unlawfully excluded from participating in the election.
The panel held that the election was unlawful due to the exclusion of ADP and its candidate, King George from the November 16 Governorship Election.
The tribunal however ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a bye election within 90 days.
