Bayelsa: Court to Decide Alaibe, Diri’s Fate Today


A Federal High Court sitting in Owerri, Imo state will today deliver judgement on the suit brought before it by a former Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Timi Alaibe challenging the conduct of the September 3, 2019 Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Bayelsa state Governorship Primary.

The suit initially filed at the Federal High Court, Abuja was moved to Owerri on the request of the Governor, Douye Diri.

The suit filed pursuant to Order 3(9) of the Federal High Court (Civil Procedure) Rules 2019, seeks answers to questions bordering on obvious non-adherence to the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the Electoral Act 2010, the People’s Democratic Party Constitution and Election Guidelines, by the state chapter of the party in the conduct of the ward congresses, inclusion of local government council officials on the delegates list and the procedure for the inclusion of three ad-hoc delegates.
