GOV DICKSON APPLAUDS JUDICIARY AS COURT DISMISSES SYLVA’S SUIT

Bayelsa State Governor, Hon. Seriake Dickson has described the verdict of the Federal High Court Yenagoa on a suit filed by the former Governor, Timipre Sylva as a welcome development.

The Court presided over by Justice Lambo Akanbi on Wednesday dismissed a suit filed against the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC) challenging the candidacy of Governor Seriake Dickson as the flag-bearer of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) for the 2012 governorship election in the State.

Faulting the process adopted by the plaintiff in his ruling, the presiding Judge noted that the case in question has been entertained by too many courts and that the matter was not taken to court within the constitutional three months period but was filed after eleven months, a move he said is not recognized by law.

Lauding the decision of the Court, Hon. Dickson said it has further confirmed his earlier submission that the nation’s Judiciary remains the last hope of the common man.

Describing the suit filed by the plaintiff as abuse of judicial process, Hon. Dickson said it was aimed at derailing the developmental train of his administration.

Commending the people of the state for their unflinching support to his administration, the governor said he would remain focused, warning people against playing politics with the development of the state.

“The victory is for the nation’s thriving democracy and for the people of the state. No legal battle instituted or about to be instituted can distract us from delivering the dividends of democracy to our people”

On the nation’s Judiciary system, I have said over and over that our judicial officers are men and women of honour. I have so much respect for them.

Judiciary as an arm of government is one of the pillars that uphold the nation’s democratic rule and the officers are living up to their oath of office.”

    I am a 16 year old female trying to lose my belly fat. I am 5′ 2″ and weigh about 125-128 pounds. How many calories should i be eating a day and how many should i burn? I get on the treadmill for an hour 6 days a week. I think i burn about 600cal. Should running the treadmill be the best thing for losing my belly fat? If I could get some good information, that would be great.
    -Thanks
