I‘ve Taken Verdict In Good Faith, Says Sylva

28 January 2012

Yenagoa residents celebrate gov’s exit

THE governor of Bayelsa State, Chief Timipre Sylva has said that as a democrat and firm believer in the rule of law, he has taken the ruling of the Supreme Court terminating his tenure in good faith.

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Doifie Ola, the governor described the verdict as a temporary setback. According to him, the implication of the judgment is that the January 2011 primary election which he won as candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) subsists.

Sylva enjoined his supporters to remain calm and not take the law into their hands. He thanked the people of Bayelsa State for the opportunity given him to serve.

“As governor for the past four years, the Sylva-led government has touched the lives of the people and changed the state for the better.” he said.

Sylva spoke yesterday as Yenagoa, the state capital erupted in celebration as news of the ouster of the governor by the Supreme Court hit the airwaves.
