Bayelsa guber: Sylva heads for Appeal Court, says Bayelsa liberation close, inevitable 

The Governorship Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bayelsa State and former Minister of State, Petroleum, Chief Timipre Sylva, has expressed dissatisfaction with Monday’s Bayelsa Governorship Election Tribunal judgment.
A statement signed by his Special Assistant on Media and Public Affairs, Julius Bokoru, said that Sylva, immediately after the judgement, held a meeting with elders and stakeholders of the party.
Rising from the meeting, the former Governor of Bayelsa directed his legal team to immediately seek justice at the Court of Appeal.
Prior to the judgement, Sylva had accused the tribunal of bias following several infractions observed by his lawyers during the hearing of the case.
He subsequently filed an interlocutory appeal demanding the dissolution of the panel and its reconstitution.
Sylva said: “We are not satisfied with the decision of the tribunal. But this is just a court of first instance and after meeting with the elders and critical stakeholders of our great party, the APC, we directed our legal team to seek justice for Bayelsa at the Supreme Court”.
The governorship candidate assured the people of Bayelsa that the Court of Appeal would surely correct  the travesty he said had been perpetrated by the tribunal.
He declared that the liberation of Bayelsa was close and that justice was inevitable for the traumatized people of the state appealing to them to remain positive, law-abiding and steadfast.
