The Supreme Court on Wednesday dismissed six appeals filed against the election of Douye Diri of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) as Governor of Bayelsa State.
A seven man panel of the court led by Justice Sylvester Ngwuta, in its first decision, dismissed the appeal by the Advanced Nigeria Democratic Party (ANDP) following its withdrawal by the appellant.
The court noted that the appellant’s claim of wrongful disqualification of its candidate by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was wrongly made because the said candidate did not meet the constitutional age requirement in the first place.
