A seven-man panel of the Supreme Court has affirmed Douye Diri as the duly elected governor of Bayelsa State.
In a unanimous judgement by Justice Sylvester Ngwuta, the apex court dismissed the six appeals filed against the governor and his deputy, Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo.
Justice Ngwuta, in his judgement, predicated the dismissal of the appeals on the withdrawal of the six appeals by lawyers of the appellants.
According to Channels Television report, the appeals dismissed were filed by the Alliance for Democracy, Advanced Nigeria Democratic Party and Labour Movement.
The suit by Accord Party against Diri and Ewhrudjakpo was also dismissed.
