The North-West zonal leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was not allowed to field governorship candidates in Zamfara State for the forthcoming general elections until it conducts a fresh primary.
The APC North-West Zonal Chairman, Salihu Lukman, made the declaration in a press statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday.
Checks revealed that the electoral body is expected to publish final list of governorship and state Assemblies candidates next month.
Lukman based his position on last Friday’s judgement of a Federal High Court in Gusau, Zamfara, which nullified the governorship primary election of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that produced Dauda Lawan-Dare as the party’s governorship candidate in the 2023 general elections in the state.
