Senator Douye Diri of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has received the Certificate of Return as the governor-elect of Bayelsa State.

He was presented with the certificate on Friday at the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Abuja.

This comes a day after the Supreme Court sack Mr David Lyon of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and ordered the electoral body to withdraw the Certificate of Return earlier issued to him.

Senator Diri’s running mate in the November 16, 2019 poll, Senator Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo, also received the Certificate of Return as the deputy governor-elect of the state.
