Recall that on Thursday the Supreme court sacked David Lyon as the governor-elect in the state.
A five-man panel led by Mary Odili had directed the Independent National Electoral Commission to withdraw the certificate of return from David Lyon and his deputy, Degi-Eremienyo, over certificate forgery.
Ben Bruce while reacting to the ruling stated that Diri’s victory at the apex court is a win for the people of Bayelsa State.
See his tweet below:
I celebrate you, my friend and brother, Senator Douye Diri. Your victory at the Supreme Court is a victory for truth and most especially, a victory for the great people of Bayelsa State. I wish you the best as you continue gallantly, the journey of your predecessor. pic.twitter.com/K7zXfTQjch
