The judicial travail of Governor Duoye Diri of Bayelsa State is finally over as the Supreme Court has affirmed his election.
The seven man panel affirmed Douye Diri as the duly elected governor of Bayelsa State.
While ruling in a unanimous judgement by the apex Court, Justice Sylvester Ngwuta dismissed the six appeals filed against the governor and his deputy, Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo.
Justice Ngwuta, in his judgement, predicated the dismissal of the appeals on the withdrawal of the six appeals by lawyers of the appellants.
