INEC Issues Certificate of Return to PDP’s Diri as Bayelsa Gov-Elect

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), on Friday, issued a Certificate of Return to the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Douye Diri.

Supreme Court had nullified the earlier announced victory of All progressives Congress candidate David Lyon 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 INEC to withdraw the Certificate of Return issued to them and reissue the same to the next party with the required constitutional spread.
