However, Sylva polled 981 votes to defeat his distant rival, Mr. Godknows Powell, who scored 39 votes in a peaceful primary conducted at the state secretariat of the party in Yenagoa on Wednesday.
With this victory, Sylva will face incumbent Governor Seriake d*ckson, who defeated him in the 2011 governorship election.
Mansur Alli, chairman of the elector*l committee, announced the results in Yenagoa, saying a total of 1,147 delegates were accredited for the exercise.
