The Bayelsa Governorship Election Tribunal has nullified the election of Governor Douye Diri.
The Tribunal has ordered INEC to order a fresh election within 90 days.
In a split judgement of two-one, the three-man panel ruled that INEC does not have the power to disqualify any candidate for any election.
The verdict follows the petition by the Advanced Nigeria Democratic Party (ANDP) challenging the victory of Governor Diri in the November 19 governorship election.
The ANDP is claiming that the party was unlawfully excluded from the election.
But the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in its argument said that the party’s Deputy Governorship candidate was 34 years old as at the time of nomination and therefore did not qualify to contest the election.
