The Labour Party governorship candidate in the just-concluded Bayelsa State governorship election, Udengs Eradiri, has rejected the electoral process and the outcome in which Governor Douye Diri was reelected.

Diri, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party polled a total of 175,196 votes to defeat his closest rival, Timipre Sylva of the All Progressives Congress, who got 110,108 votes while Eradiri came third with 905 votes.

Addressing a press conference at his campaign secretariat in Yenagoa on Tuesday, Eradiri said the November 11, 2023 contest was held against the cardinal principles and laid-down procedures that democratic elections into offices, especially that of the governor of a state, must be free, fair, credible and peaceful.

He said he and his team were “studying the results and brainstorming on the next line of action.”
