Bayelsa Guber: Tribunal Reserves Judgement In Sylva’s Petition Against Diri, Others

The tribunal, chaired by Justice Adekunle Adeleye, will deliver its judgement within the statutory 180-day period.

The Bayelsa State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal has concluded hearings and is now reviewing a petition by Timipre Sylva, the APC governorship candidate, challenging the victory of Douye Diri of the PDP as Governor of the state.

The tribunal, chaired by Justice Adekunle Adeleye, will deliver its judgement within the statutory 180-day period.

All parties involved will be notified once the judgement date is set. At the recent session, each party presented their written arguments, either supporting their petition by citing election irregularities or contesting the validity of the APC’s case.

Diri, who began his tenure in 2020, secured a second term by winning the November 2023 governorship election with 175,196 votes, while Sylva received 110,108 votes.
