Bayelsa State News Today

According to the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission, the people of Bayelsa state, the home of the immediate past president Goodluck Jonathan, will vote for their new governor on Saturday, December 5.

The face-off is expected between Timipre Marlin Sylva, a former governor of the state representing the All Progressives Congress, and  Henry Seriake Dickson, a PDP hopeful and the incumbent governor of the state.

However, the voting on December 5-6, 2015, failed to produce the winner due to multiple irregularities and cancellations, especially in Southern Ijaw local government area of the state. Now, the supplementary election is on.
