Breaking: Tribunal Voids Election of Governor Diri of Bayelsa State

The Bayelsa State Gubernatorial Petition Tribunal has nullified the election of Bayelsa State Governor Duoye Diri.
According to The Guardian News, it reported that the election was nullified based on a petition by the Advanced Nigeria Democratic Party, which argued that it was unlawfully excluded by INEC from participating in the November 16, 2019 governorship election in the State.
The decision was made in a 2-1 judgment of the Tribunal. The Tribunal therefore ordered the Independent National Election Commission INEC to conduct a fresh election within 90 days.
