This win, ITRealms reports spurred jubilations across Bayelsa, just as PDP got a total of  11,567 of the 14,445 in the rerun votes, while APC have a mere 2,721 votes from the figures released last night.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in summary of the election, announced Gov. Dickson as the winner of the governorship election which commenced last December but was put on hold due to elections in the Southern Ijaw local government was marred by violence.

Meanwhile, a close observation of the voting pattern in Bayelsa State, further makes victory almost certain for  Hon. Seriake Dickson, who is set to break the  two - tenure jinx.
