APC HEADS TO COURT OVER ZAMFARA AGAIN, SET TO CHALLENGE INEC DECISIONS

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State has announced plans to challenge some elective positions presently being occupied by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the State.

The state Chairman of the party, Alhaji Lawali Liman, disclosed this at a press briefing held at the party’s state Secretariat in Gusau, on Wednesday, NAN reports.

DAILY POST recalls that Supreme Court voided all votes’ cast for the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the just concluded governorship election in Zamfara State. 

Liman giving an update on the elective positions given to PDP and other parties, said INEC was too hasty to declare the party with the second highest vote.

He stated that the APC was looking into the matter with a view of seeking redress.

He said: “We held a meeting recently with the party’s National Chairman in Abuja who informed me that our party has a window to challenge the action of the INEC following the Supreme Court ruling that nullified our election in the state.

“Since the matter taken to the court revolved around irregularities of primaries, we had 13 candidates for the state House of Assembly, three for the Senate and two for the House of Representatives.

“This were those who contested unopposed and the primaries did not affect them.

“INEC was too hasty to declare the party with the second highest votes because the exact directive of the Supreme Court was that the next party with the ‘requisite spread should be declared and by these, our issues were not taken into consideration.”
