Bayelsa: APC gets stay of execution, ready for guber election
The Court of Appeal in Abuja has granted the All Progressives Congress (APC) a stay of execution on the judgment delivered by the Federal High Court nullifying the primaries of the party, minister of state for Petroleum, Mr Timipre Sylva, said.
He said that the APC and its candidate Mr. David Lyon would fully participate in Saturday’s governorship election.
“I must tell you that the judgment nullifying the primary was clearly a biased one with all due respect to the judiciary.
“That means, we are fully as a party in the position of contesting this election.
“Because we know that the people of Bayelsa are seriously behind us and we will win the election.
“The electorate should go en-masse and vote the candidature of the APC, Mr David Lyon,” the minister said.
The Federal High Court sitting in Yenagoa, Bayelsa on Thursday voided the direct primary conducted by the APC that produced Mr David Lyon as the governorship candidate of the party.
