Bayelsa Elections 2019
Former governor Seriake Dickson has clinched automatic nomination of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the Bayelsa West Senatorial District by-election.
A faction of the Advanced Nigerian Democratic Party (ANDP) has distanced itself from Lucky George, the party's governorship candidate in the 2019 Bayelsa poll.
Mr Duoye Diri has filed an appeal against the judgement of the Bayelsa election tribunal which sacked him as the governor of the state alongside his deputy.
INEC national commissioner and chairman, information and voter education committee, Festus Okoye, stated this in an interview with the NAN on Monday, August 17.
Months after November 2019 governorship election in Bayelsa state, the poll has continued to be a subject of litigations, just as predicted by Prophet Fufeyin.
The victory of Governor Douye Diri of Bayelsa state was cancelled by a tribunal in Abuja because the ANDP candidate, King George, was excluded from the poll.
