The Court of Appeal sitting in Owerri, Imo State, has dismissed the appeal filed by Chief Timi Alaibe against the nomination of Douye Diri as candidate of the PDP in Bayelsa State.
Alaibe was in the appeal court to be declared winner of the governorship primary election or the nullification of the entire election.
But on Tuesday, the court met and dismissed the appeal.
It was not clear if Alaibe will proceed to the Supreme Court. But there had been signals of his willingness to exhaust all legal avenues on the matter.
