The incumbent governor and the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Seriake Dickson, has emerged winner after scoring the most vote in the Bayelsa State governorship election.

With the results of all the local governments announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Dickson scored a total of 133,020 votes to beat the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Timipre Sylva, who scored 86,395 votes.

The substantive election in the state was held on December 5, 2015 but INEC declared the election inconclusive after it cancelled the poll in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area following reports of widespread electoral malpractices and violence.

INEC subsequently fixed January 9, 2016 for a supplementary election in the affected local government and some polling units in other local governments where election did not hold on December 5.
