Timipre Sylva ‘suspended’ by APC

Former governor of Bayelsa, Timipre Sylva has been suspended by the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress.

The state executive of the party on Saturday, announced the suspension of Sylva from the ruling party.

A statement was released to this effect by the State chairman of the party, Timipa Tiwei Orunimighe and secretary, Daniel Marlin.

The statement reads in part: “We find it deeply embarrassing his relentless efforts to commercialize political offices. Worse still, is that, members of the opposition who vehemently stood against the change ideal and still do not believe in our party’s course are with him on the bargaining table. This is not in fidelity with the party’s constitution which states in Article 21, section 1, subsection 3 that ‘…Engaging in dishonest practices…’ are punishable by full stretch.”

“We have it on good record Timipre Sylva, last week Tuesday precisely, paid a clandestine visit to one of the south south Governors of the pdp, this is just one of the series of correspondences between them and we find it grossly unbecoming. This is in direct breach of Article 21, under ‘Offences’ in the party constitution which states in section 2, ‘Anti-Party activities or any conduct, which is likely to embarrass or have adverse effect on the party or bring the party into hatred, contempt, ridicule or disrepute’ Is punishable.”
