|Hon. Seriake Dickson|
The HDP which dragged the electoral umpire INEC to the Court, calling for the nullification of the said election on the grounds that the party's candidate Bulus Wombu and the running mate King George were deliberately and unlawfully excluded.
The suit was filed by Albert Ambrose Owuru, seeking nullification of the said election, stated further that even the logo of their party, the HDP was not printed on the ballot paper used for the governorship election of December 5th 2015.
Sensing danger in the move by the HDP, the Bayelsa State governor and declared winner of the said election, Henry Seriake Dickson was said to have made a swift move with his party, the PDP and joined in the suit.
From all indications, the political terrain in the all Ijaw state is not yet certain as to what direction the political pendulum is swinging towards. If the Federal High Court heed the prayers raised by the petitioners then Bayelsa may be subjected to yet another round of governorship election in the state to elect their leader.

|Chief Timipre Sylva|
Chief Sylva who described the development as flagrant disobedience to the electoral laws, which provides that, where outstanding votes were higher or above the votes of a leading candidate, such an election becomes inconclusive by law because of the outstanding higher votes, contented that the declaration Dickson or the PDP was an act of impunity and lawlessness.
Chief Sylva had said that when he saw the Resident Electoral Commissioner [REC] and the State Administrative Officer of INEC of Bayelsa, he identified them as the very ones posted or deployed by the President Jonathan led PDP government to rig the 2015 presidential election to favour Goodluck Jonathan, and who gave him near 100 percent of the presidential votes cast.
According to him, when he noticed that, they were the same persons going to conduct the governorship election in Bayelsa, he raised an alarm that they should redeployed and neutral persons that had no partisan interest be brought to replace them to conduct the election, but INEC refused to act on the alarm he raised. He went further and committed his protest to writing; and the petition too was ignored, Chief Sylva explained.
The APC governorship candidate said he had no other alternative than to continue in the race since he could not pull out of it, because of their conspiracy with the PDP.
He described the REC and the Admin. Secretary of the INEC in Bayelsa State as "rigging machine for the PDP", and that rigging started from the distribution of materials, where electoral materials were diverted to unknown destinations instead of to the polling centers or units.
Addressing Journalists in Yenagoa, Chief Sylva said the declaration of a winner in an inconclusive election was unconstitutional. and therefore unacceptable to him and his Party, the APC.
He called on all members of the APC and his supporters in the state to remain calm while assuring them that INEC will be dragged to court to restore the wrongly cancelled votes that gave a clear victory to the APC against the PDP
Meanwhile the governor of Bayelsa State, Hon. Seriake Dickson has commended INEC for doing a good job and the people of the state for giving him the support, while assuring that those who perpetrated violence at the election shall be brought to justice..
