APC Won’t Field Candidates In Zamfara, INEC Insists

APC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has maintained that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will not field candidates for Zamfara state in the 2019 elections.

INEC re-emphasised this again after its Wednesday meeting, insisting that the ruling party did not conduct valid primaries to elect candidates for the governorship, national assembly and state assembly elections in the state.

INEC made the clarification in view of two contradictory court judgments on the matter.

A state high court in Zamfara had ruled that the APC conducted primaries in the state, while a federal high court in Abuja held that the party did not conduct valid primaries and therefore is ineligible to field candidates for the elections.
