The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has declared the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Douye Diri, Bayelsa Governor-elect.
The Supreme Court had sacked David Lyon of the All Progressives Congress (APC) over forgery committed by his Deputy, Degi Ereminyo.
This was the outcome of a closed-door meeting held by the agency’s top executives.
Diri is expected to be with the Certificate-of-Return in the next 20 minutes.
More to come.
