INEC BANS APC FROM FIELDING CANDIDATES IN ZAMFARA

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has banned the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) from fielding candidates for governorship, state and federal legislative elections in Zamfara state.

In a letter written to the ruling party and signed by the commission’s acting scribe, Okechukwu Ndeche, INEC said its decision was based on the provisions of sections 87 and 31 of the electoral act 2010 (as amended). 

This followed the inability of the national leadership of the party and the state government to reach a common ground on the conduct of party primaries before the October 7th deadline given by the electoral umpire.
