*Orders new poll in 90 days
The Bayelsa Governorship Election Tribunal has nullified the election of Senator Duoye Diri of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as Governor of Bayelsa State.
The three-member panel held the election was unlawful due to the exclusion of Action Democratic Party (ADP) and its candidate, King George from the November 16, 2019 governorship election.
The tribunal further ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a bye election within 90 days.
The election of David Lyon was nullified on the eve of his swearing in in November last year.
