Bayelsa State Governor triumph at Supreme Court

Governor Douye Diri has won the suit against him by Timi Alaibe challenging his emergence as the flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the Supreme Court.

Alaibe who had lost the suit in both the Federal High Court in Owerri and the Port Harcourt Division of the Court of Appeal, challenge the participation of two delegates who voted during the party primaries.

A five man panel led by Justice Olabode Rhodes-Vivour dismissed the suit by Alaibe on the ground that the issue raised was an internal affair of the party which the court lacks the jurisdiction to hear.

Counsel to Alaibe, Chief Ifedayo Adedipe was prompted to withdraw the appeal and the case was struck out of court
