Chief Collins Cocodia however dismissed the notion that the ruling party in the state will win the elections since the Bayelsa State Independent Electoral Commission, BYSIEC, was appointed by the Governor, and so, the umpire might want to appease the State Chief Executive in return, and will bend the rules in the Governor’s favor.

The immediate past Political Adviser reiterated his call for electronic voting which he stressed will not only help in advancing the voting process, but deliver credible polls, and also increase citizen participation in subsequent elections.
