The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has expressed its dissatisfaction with the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) decision to remove its Governorship Candidate in Bayelsa state, Timipre Sylva, from the list of candidates for the upcoming election. The APC believes that although INEC may have followed a court order, it was premature because the party had already filed an appeal for a stay of execution.
According to the party’s spokesperson, Felix Morka, the APC is not happy with the updated list of gubernatorial candidates released by INEC. The list did not include the name of Chief Timipre Sylva, who is the APC candidate for the November 11 governorship election in Bayelsa State. The party believes that INEC’s decision was made too soon, even though it may have been based on a court order.
The APC has already filed an appeal for a stay of execution, which means they are asking the court to suspend the order that led to Sylva’s removal from the list of candidates. The party believes that their appeal should have been considered before INEC made its decision. They argue that it is unfair to remove Sylva from the list without giving the court a chance to review their appeal.
The APC is not happy with INEC’s decision to remove Timipre Sylva from the list of gubernatorial candidates for the upcoming election in Bayelsa State. They believe that the decision was premature and that their appeal for a stay of execution should have been considered. The party is determined to fight for Sylva’s inclusion in the election and will continue to pursue legal avenues to ensure a fair process.
