A Federal High Court sitting in Owerri, Imo State, on Tuesday, March 10, 2020, affirmed Senator Douye Diri as validly elected governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during the September 3, 2019 Elective Congress of the party in Bayelsa State.
In a judgment which lasted for about two hours, Justice Tijani Ringim dismissed the case by Chief Ndutimi Alaibe, ruling that the PDP chieftain and failed governorship aspirant failed to prove his case.
Reacting to the ruling, Governor Diri in a statement signed by his Acting Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Daniel Alabrah, extended the olive branch to Alaibe and other aggrieved persons.
He said: “I received today’s judgement of the Federal High Court as yet another affirmation of the will of God. It is victory for the people of Bayelsa and indeed the Ijaw nation. So there is no victor nor vanquished.
“In the spirit of our unity and the love we share, I again extend the olive branch to all Bayelsans, including my dear brother, Chief Ndutimi Alaibe, to join hands with me to develop and move our state forward.
“My resolve is that together with all Bayelsans of goodwill, we can make our state greater.”
