INEC Omits APC From Governorship, State Assembly Elections In Zamfara
Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has omitted candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the final list of candidates for governorship and State Assembly elections in Zamfara State.
This was contained in a statement by the INEC national commissioner in charge of information and voter education, Festus Okoye, on Wednesday.
“The commission has decided to maintain its original position that the party in question did not conduct primaries.”
INEC had stopped the APC from presenting candidates in Zamfara for failing to meet the deadline to conduct primaries.
The party leadership however disagreed with this and promised to field candidates but INEC stood its grounds.
Following the decision, there were two conflicting judgments on whether APC conducted primaries within the stipulated time.
