Following the substantive election in Bayelsa state held on December 5, 2015; INEC declared the election inconclusive after it cancelled the poll in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area following reports of widespread electoral malpractices and violence.
INEC subsequently fixed January 9, 2016, for a supplementary election in the affected local government and some polling units in other local governments where election did not hold on.
The incumbent Governor and candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Seriake Dickson, has yet emerged winner after scoring the most vote in the State’s Governorship election.
With the results of all the local governments announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Mr. Dickson scored a total of 134,998 votes to beat former governor of the state, and candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Timipre Sylva, who scored 86,852 votes. Congratulation Hon. Henry Dickson Seriake!
