The Bayelsa Governorship Election Tribunal sitting in Abuja on Monday nullified the election that produced candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party,  Senator Duoye Diri, as Governor.

The panel held that the election was unlawful due to the exclusion of Advanced Nigerian Democratic Party (ANDP) and its candidate, King George, from the November 16 Governorship Election.

The tribunal however ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a bye election within 90 days.
