Residents of Bayelsa state on Tuesday, November 8, trooped out on the streets in celebration of Governor Seriake Dickson's victory at the Supreme Court.

The seven-man panel of the apex court had earlier dismissed the appeal filed against Dickson by Timipre Sylva, the candidate of theĀ  All Progressives Congress (APC) in the last governorship election in the state.

The panel headed by Justice Tanko Muhammad upheld Dickson's victory but did not give reasons Sylva's appeal was thrown out.
