The Independent National Electoral Commission, on Friday, declared the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Douye Diri, as the winner of the November 16 governorship election held in Bayelsa State and also issued him a Certificate of Return in compliance with the order of the Supreme Court, which sacked David Lyon 24 hours to his inauguration.

Supreme Court had nullified the All progressives Congress victory of November 16 governorship election. The Supreme Court had ruled that Lyon’s Deputy, Degi Ereminyo, submitted forged certificates that disqualified the joint ticket and nomination.

The court asked the Independent National Electoral Commission to withdraw the Certificate of Return issued to them and reissue the same to the next party with the required constitutional spread.
