Bayelsa 2019: Visit INEC website to know my running mate, Diri directs Journalists

 

Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Governorship Candidate in the forth-coming Bayelsa State Gubernatorial election, Senator Douye Diri, has shockingly directed journalists to visit Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC website to know his running mate.

 

This is even as the deadline given by the Independent National Electoral Commission for parties to submit names of candidates for the November 16 Governorship election in the state is expected to end in six days.

 

Our Bayelsa State Correspondent reports that Senator Diri gave the surprise directive during an interactive session with journalists at the Bayelsa State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists in Yenagoa.

 

The guber hopeful stated, “If you go to the INEC website, you will know who my running mate is. I ran a primaries; after the primaries, I ran under a platform which is my party, the PDP. And the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria empowers me to nominate a running mate. And when I do that, I’m not doing that alone; I’m doing that through my party. And my party has the responsibility of forwarding that name to INEC and it is only when INEC has published that he becomes my running mate. And that’s why I’m referring you to INEC website”.

 

 

Speculations are rife that the PDP has nominated the Senator representing Bayelsa West Senatorial District, Senator Lawrence Erujakpo as running mate to Douye Diri.
