The Bayelsa state Government is seeking a shift in the date for the November the second gubernatorial election in the State.

This demand was tabled before the Chairman of the independent National Electoral Commission by the state’s Deputy Governor Gboribiogha John Jonah when he held talks with him on Tuesday at INEC’S Headquarters.

The shift is being sought because the election date clashes with the State’s annual Thanksgiving event.

Professor Mahmood Yakubu in his comments promised that the Commission will consider the demand.
