Hey there, middle schoolers! Today, we’re going to talk about Timipre Sylva and his appeal against disqualification in the Bayelsa governorship election. So, let’s dive in!
Timipre Sylva is a politician and the candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the upcoming Bayelsa governorship election. But recently, a lower court disqualified him from running in the election. That means he can’t participate in the election unless he appeals the decision.
Timipre Sylva didn’t waste any time. He filed an appeal against the judgment of the lower court. His lawyer, Mr. Ahmed Raji, submitted the appeal and asked the court to set aside the judgment. In addition to the appeal, Sylva also filed a request to delay the execution of the judgment. This means he wants the court to wait before enforcing the disqualification until his appeal is heard.
Before we go, let’s quickly recap what happened. A judge named Justice Donatus Okorowo from the Federal High Court in Abuja disqualified Timipre Sylva from the Bayelsa governorship election. This means he can’t run for governor. But Sylva is not giving up. He believes the judgment was wrong, and that’s why he filed an appeal.
So, that’s the latest news about Timipre Sylva and his appeal against disqualification in the Bayelsa governorship election. We’ll have to wait and see what happens next. Stay tuned for more updates!
