by Adabanija Kamorudeen

Timi Alaibe, one of the 21 aspirants in the just concluded governorship primary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Bayelsa State, has gone to court, seeking the cancellation of the exercise.

The primary was won by Douye Diri, a senator who is backed by the incumbent governor of the state, Seriake Dickson.

Mr Diri scored 561 votes, while Mr Alaibe came second with 365 votes.

Mr Alaibe, in a statement on Saturday from his campaign organisation, said the electoral process was “flawed” and “manipulated”, and that he was “brazenly robbed of victory”.
