Voting is currently ongoing in the Bayelsa and Kogi governorship election.

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, today, November 16, 2019, commenced voting for the governorship elections in both states.

In Bayelsa, Diri Duoye (PDP), is vying to replace the outgoing PDP governor, Seriake Dickson, while APC’s David Lyon is contending for the same position with many other candidates.

In Kogi, the incumbent governor, Yahaya Bello (APC), is on the ballot to secure a second term in office. He is going against more than 20 other candidates, including Musa Wada of PDP and SDP’s Natasha Akpoti.

The election in Kogi will also include a rerun of the Kogi West senatorial position between Dino Melaye and Smart Adeyemi. The position became vacant after the Court of Appeal sacked Dino Melaye, and ordered a fresh election last month.
