Court of Appeal sets aside majority Judgment which nullifies election of Douye Diri as governor of Bayelsa State.
*ANDP did not prove valid nomination of its candidate to contend unlawful exclusion.
**Case of ANDP was statute barred having failed to file within 14days
SOURCE
A five-man panel of the Appellate Court has overturned a ruling which nullified the election of Douye Diri as governor of Bayelsa State.
The court held that the Bayelsa Election Petition Tribunal acted outside its jurisdiction by nullifying the election of Governor Diri.
In a unanimous judgment, the five-man panel of the court said the Advanced Nigeria Democratic Party failed woefully to show that it had a valid candidate that was unlawfully excluded by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The court berated the tribunal for ignoring the fact that the petition of ANDP was status barred in addition to the fact that the party presented an unqualified candidate to INEC in the November 16, 2019 Governorship election in Bayelsa State.

Prof. Aliyu Abdullahi Jibia said President Muhammadu Buhari had made a mistake in accepting that he was being called a good man.

Prof. Aliyu Abdullahi Jibia, the P.R.P candidate for governor of Katsina State, made the announcement on his Facebook account.

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has made a big mistake by accepting to be called an honest man, and today he has been denied by God, because God is truthful.

“After all, in his words he shows that he is the most talented person in the world, while God is the Expert!

In the same way, Buhari criticized everyone’s work, and then God made him tired too!

Then he showed the Southerners the full Love, forgetting that the Southerners were not experienced!

Finally, whose city is it?

As long as Buhari does not repent to God, despite his failures, and admit that he made a mistake, and seek God’s help, he will never succeed again, except to reap losses!

I Aliyu Abdullahi Jibia, by God willing I will continue to inform him this, until the end of my life, until he changes!

I will do this, because with my gums this government had been set.

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council, has urged governors of the South-East to join the ruling All Progressives Congress.
The group said it was apparent that the Peoples Democratic Party did not have the region’s best interests at heart, and as such, there was no need for leaders of the zone to continue to work with the main opposition party.
The zonal Secretary General of the group, Mr. Nnabuike Okwu, said this after a virtual meeting with leaders and other critical stakeholders of the region, on Monday.
This call came barely 48 hours after speculations that the Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, had concluded plans to dump the PDP and take up membership of the APC.
Okwu said “Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, after their consultative virtual meeting, with Igbo leaders and elders, on Monday, has been mandated to start mounting pressure on the South-East governors to abandon their political parties, especially those in the People’s Democratic Party, to join the mainstream ruling party, the All Progressive Congress, without further delay.
“OYC urges the governors to defect, because there are no political benefits for the South-East to continue to remain in a political party that has no respect and value for Igbos, except milking their votes during elections through deceitful mediums and fake promises, and manipulative politicians.
