*Tonye Isenah, Ongore Ebikeme Coasting To Victory
Indications have emerged that the Bayelsa State Peoples Democratic Party candidates in the rescheduled House of Assembly polls in Sagbama, Southern Ijaw and Kolokuma-Opokuma constituencies are already coasting home to victory.
A visit to the various collation Centres in most of the polling units shows that the PDP candidates in Kolokuma-Opokuma LGA are clearly in the lead.
Hon. Tonye Isenah of KOLGA constituency 1 and Hon. Ongore Ebikeme Joshua of constituency 2 are leading by a wide margin.
Also All Progressives Grand Alliance candidates allegedly sponsored by the First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan and Waripamowei Dudafa were roundly defeated at the polls despite what a source described as “their undue interference and manipulation of the process.”
Similarly, reports of the polls result filtering in the other constituencies in Sagbama, Ekeremor and Southern Ijaw LGAs also clearly reveal that all the PDP candidates are clearly in the lead.
A source said, “It is very certain that PDP will have clean sweep of all the 8 constituencies in the rescheduled polls conducted today (Saturday April 18 2015.”
Meanwhile, Bayelsa State Governor, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson after casting his votes along with his wife, Rachael, at his hometown polling Unit 5, Orue-Ereware at Toru- Orua, Sagbama Ward 2 in Sagbama LGA, commended INEC and security agencies for the orderly conduct of the polls.
