Ex-lawmaker representing Bayelsa East in the upper legislative chamber, Senator Murray Ben-Bruce, has paid tribute to Senator Douye Diri, after the Supreme Court verdict on the Bayelsa elections.

Press had reported that the apex court on Thursday, sacked David Lyon as the governor-elect.

A panel of judges led by Mary Odili, voided the joint ticket of Lyon and Degi-Eremienyo over certificate forgery and set aside their participation in the governorship election.

Ben Bruce said Diri’s victory at the Supreme Court means ‘truth’ and most importantly a win for the great people of Bayelsa State.
