The three-man election petition tribunal sitting in Abuja had, in a split decision of two-to-one, nullified the November 16, 2019 Bayelsa State governorship election as a result of unlawful exclusion of the Advanced Nigeria Democratic Party and its candidate, King George, from the exercise.

The Court of Appeal upheld the appeals on Friday by holding that ANDP was not unlawfully excluded from the election.
