There Was No Guber Election In Bayelsa – Dickson

Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State has insisted that there was no election in the state on November 16.

He said this while speaking to journalists on Monday in Abuja. He said security agents had conspired with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to smuggle in already prepared result sheets into the state.

David Lyon, candidate of the APC, defeated Duoye Diri of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), putting an end to the long reign of the opposition party in the state.

He said violence recorded during the electoral process left 12 people dead and another 93 injured.

“The reality in Bayelsa is that there was no election. It is an insult to the integrity of institutions and our people to refer to what happened on November 16 as an election,” Dickson said.

“From hospitals’ records, we can for now account for 93 people, who were injured during the attack on the PDP supporters in Nembe and are currently receiving treatments in hospitals.
