Dickson defeated in front of Govt House, PDP chairman loses in own ward

Dickson, Sylva in tight race as results trickle in
•PDP chairman loses in own ward
• Dickson defeated in front of Govt House


Governor Seriake Dickson of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Chief Timipre Sylva of the All Progressives Congress (APC) appear to be running neck and neck in yesterday’s governorship election in Bayelsa State as results of the poll began trickling in last night.


Collation of the results went far into the night and a clearer picture is expected to emerge today.

Early results showed that the PDP performed badly in some of the areas it considered its strongholds including the neighbourhood of Government House, Yenagoa.

At the Peace Park polling unit 10 close to the seat of power Sylva polled 58 votes to Dickson’s 27.



The   PDP also lost to the APC in the wards of several of its notable leaders including the Chairman of the party in the state Chief Serena Dokubo (Brass LG),and the Deputy Majority leader in the State House of Assembly, Hon. Tonye Isenah (Kolokuma/Opokuma LGA).

Results from Ekeremor, Brass, Kolokuma/Opokuma, Nembe and Yenagoa Local Government Areas showed that Sylva had pulled ahead of Dickson, although the governor was on top in Sagbama Local Government area.

Results from Ogbia LGA showed a close race.

There was no election in Wards 4 and 5 in Ogbia council area following of security threat by supporters of the two major contending parties.
