INEC to conduct supplementary poll in three Bayelsa constituencies

The Independent National Electoral Commission on Tuesday announced that it would conduct a supplementary election in the three constituencies where elections were declared inconclusive in Saturday’s state House of Assembly election in Bayelsa State.

Mr Wilfred Ifogah, INEC Head of Department, Voter Education and Publicity, who announced this in Yenagoa, listed the constituencies as Ogbia Constituency 11, Brass 1 and Southern-Ijaw IV.

Of the 24 seats in the Bayelsa House of Assembly, 21 have been fully declared; the People Democratic Party won 17, while the All Progressives Congress claimed 4.

Ifogah explained that the reason for declaring three constituencies inconclusive was due to failure to follow INEC regulations and guidelines for the conduct of the 2019 general elections.

Ifogah said that the commission would inform stakeholders of the new date to conduct the supplementary election.
