The Court of Appeal sitting in Owerri, Imo State, on Tuesday, May 12, has dismissed a suit filed by Timi Alaibe , affirmed Duoye Diri as governor of Bayelsa State.

Delivering its judgment on Tuesday, the court dismissed a suit filed by former Bayelsa governorship aspirant under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, Timi Alaibe, challenging the emergence of Diri as the legitimate winner of the PDP primaries held on September 3, 2019.

Alaibe had dragged the governor and the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to court over what he described as a ‘flawed process’ of the PDP primary.

Recall that the Federal High Court in Owerri had on March 10, 2020, dismissed the suit for lacking in merit.

The court noted that the PDP followed all the constitutional requirements to conduct the primary and subsequent emergence of Diri as the rightful candidate of the party.
