The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Friday, presented the Certificate of Return to Senator Douye Diri as the duly elected governor of Bayelsa State.
This happened at the INEC headquarters in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
Also presented with his Certificate of Return as the Bayelsa State Deputy Governor-Elect was Senator Lawrence Ewhrudjako.
Recall that INEC chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu had earlier declared Diri as the duly elected governor of Bayelsa state in compliance with the Supreme Court judgment on Thursday which sacked David Lyon of the APC.
“The total votes cast after excluding those of the APC now stand at 146,999. PDP polled 143,172 and scored 25 percent as required by the law,” Yakubu said during the briefing.
