Diri: Moment of Glory
Senator Douye Diri, of the People’s Democratic Party, (PDP), has been sworn-in as the 5th democratically elected Governor of Bayelsa State.
He was sworn-in after the Supreme Court on Thursday, February, 13 nullified the election of David Lyon, of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in compliance with the Supreme Court’s judgment declared Diri winner of the poll and issued him with Certificate of Return.
This paved way for the swearing-in of the Diri and his deputy at the Bayelsa Government House on Friday, February 14. at exactly 6:55pm.
