Governor of Bayelsa State, Senator Douye Diri, has revealed that he will appeal the ruling of the Bayelsa State Governorship Election Tribunal nullifying the November 2019 poll.

Recall that on Monday the tribunal nullified the 2019 Governorship election which has proven to be dramatic so far.

The tribunal stated that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) wrongly excluded the Advanced Nigeria Democratic Party (ANDP) governorship candidate from the November 16, 2019 election,
