JUST IN: INEC presents certificate of return to PDP’s Diri

By Bature Dan-Inni, Abuja

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has on Friday issued the certificate of return to Sen. Douye Diri and Sen. Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo as the governor and deputy governor of Bayelsa state, respectively.

INEC’s presentation of the certificate of return to the duo followed a directive by the Supreme Court that cancelled the election of All Progressives Congress (APC) governor-elect for Bayelsa, David Lyon and declared the PDP’s Diri and his deputy as the authentic governor-elect and deputy governor-elect for Bayelsa.
