Yenagoa - The leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bayelsa State has dismissed reports of the revocation of the suspension imposed on a former governor, Timipre Silva, for anti party activities.
In a statement issued on Monday and signed by the state Chairman, Timipa Orunimighe and Secretary, Daniel Marlin, the party said there has been no such pronouncement or declaration, as the party's National Working Committee (NWC) has not sat on the matter to take any decision.
“Our attention has been drawn to a story making the rounds that the National Working Committee (NWC) of our party, the APC ,has declared the suspension of Timipre Sylva and 4 others as illegal, null and void.
