|Intro||Acting Governor of Bayelsa State|
Werinipre Seibarugo is a People’s Democratic Party politician who was appointed acting Governor of Bayelsa State in southern Nigeria from 16 April 2008 to 27 May 2008.
Seibarugo took office after the election of governor Timipre Sylva was annulled on the basis that the Independent National Electoral Commission had failed to file a summary of results from polling units, and that the election had therefore never taken place. As speaker of the Bayelsa State House of Assembly, Seibarugo was sworn in as governor on 16 April 2008, with a new election to be held within three months. The election took place on 24 May 2008. Sylva was elected with an overwhelmingly majority and was sworn in again on 27 May 2008.
