THE Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared Hon Amakoromo
Waikumo of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, winner of the Yenagoa Constituency II rerun election.
He polled a total of 5959 votes to beat his closest rival, Hon (Mrs) Ebiuwou Koku-Obiyai of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP who scored 5263 votes.
Declaring the result, at the INEC collation centre, Okolobiri, the Returning Officer, Prof Chris Onyema, Deputy Vice Chancellor of the Federal University, Otuoke, said, the APGA candidate scored the highest number of votes and declared winner of the rerun poll for Yenagoa Constituency II.
It would be recalled that before ordered rerun in seven units of the constituency by the Court of Appeal the APGA candidate had 4,971 votes while PDP got 4593 during the March last year State House of Assembly election.
The votes scored by the candidates at the just concluded rerun poll were added to what they scored during last year’s election with the APGA again emerging victorious and truncating the third term ambition of Mrs Ebiuwou Koku-Obiyai of the PDP for the state assembly.
