Bayelsa Governor, Duoye Diri, has announced that he will be appealing the decision of the Bayelsa governorship tribunal to nullify his election.
He said he had already instructed his lawyers to file the necessary documents to challenge the ruling.
IBrandTV had reported earlier that the tribunal ruled that the Independent National Electoral Commission wrongly excluded the Advanced Nigeria Democratic Party governorship candidate in the November 16, 2019 election.
In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Daniel Alabrah, Diri said he could appeal up to the Supreme Court, and he was sure of victory.
He said, “We trust in the judiciary and we are appealing the judgement. With God on our side, we will get justice.
”This is a court of first instance and I have instructed our lawyers to file an appeal. We have a right of appeal even up to the Supreme Court.”
