Unofficial results filtering out of Bayelsa State are indicative of a major political upset in the state as opposition All Progressives Congress appears to be ahead of the Peoples Democratic Party, at least in the capital.

The PDP has been in control of the state since 1999. Recent shifts in political affiliations by political actors appear set to change the narrative.

In early results, the APC candidate, David Lyon is leading the PDP candidate Duoye Diri.

Results declared in Yenagoa, the capital showed APC in early lead, based on results declared at the polling units.
