The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Ganduje has described the court ruling disqualifying the part’s governorship candidate, Timipre Sylvia in the November 11 election as a little distraction.
Ganduje, who was answering Reporters’ questions today, October 10, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, said: “this (the judgment) is a little distraction anyway, but we will overcome it.
“We believe the appeal court will give us positive judgment but that will not stop us from making arrangement for the forthcoming election which is coming up on 11th November 2023.”
The chairman said that he was in Bayelsa two weeks ago for two days “and I think they were ready and they’re still ready to win the election.”
The chairman described the judgment as unfortunate, saying however that it is democracy in action.
“But we learned that the person who took the issue to the court of law is not even qualified, because he did not contest with the Sylva. “Therefore, he’s not even qualified for him to take the issue to the court.
“However, we are appealing. We’re waiting for the judgment and then we appeal for calm on that issue.”
