BREAKING: Bayelsa: INEC cancels election in Southern Ijaw, declares election inconclusive

Invest In Mutual Funds Like A Hero

The Independent National Electoral Commission has cancelled Saturday’s Bayelsa State governorship election in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area — one of the state’s eight LGAs.

The decision, which will soon be announced officially by INEC, means the elections are inconclusive.

INEC said the decision was taken because of violence, the abduction of electoral officials and ballot box snatching.

The election will be conducted in due date.

Governor Seriake Dickson has a clear lead in the election, according to results announced so far by INEC.

Mr. Dickson, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, won in majority of the seven local government areas announced on Sunday by INEC.

His main challenger, Timipre Sylva of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has so far scored the second highest number of votes.
