Bayelsa: Duoye Diri’s Gubernatorial Case Decided By God – Justice Mary Odili

Retired Justice of the Supreme Court, Justice Mary Odili has said that the judgement that brought in Duoye Diri as governor of Bayelsa state was decided by God.

DAILY REPORT NG recalls that Justice Mary had on February 13, 2020, led a panel of Justices of the Supreme Court court who sacked David Lyon as the Gov-elect of the state, replacing him with Diri on the eve of his planned swearing-in ceremony as Bayelsa state governor



Speaking during a book presentation in her honour held in Port Harcourt on Monday, Odili said the suit was decided on merit.

According to her: ” like I tell people, that case of Bayelsa was a case decided by God himself. None of us in that panel foresaw what was going to happen.

“Everyone who read the file had their hands on the head because there was nothing else to do than to give the judgement to the person who deserved that judgement.

“So when people were asking, are you not worried? I said I cannot be worried. Since God decided that this is the man who should occupy that seat, who am I or my colleagues to say otherwise?

“We had to do it as the law had dictated that we do it. If the haven fell, too bad, that is the way it was”.
