APC Remains Barred In Zamfara, Rivers, INEC Reaffirms

yakubu-new (1)

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Thursday reaffirmed that the All Progressives Congress (APC) remains barred from any elections in Rivers and Zamfara States, except the Presidential poll.

The INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmoud Yakubu, restated this at a press conference in Abuja.

The clarification became necessary following a letter written to INEC by the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), urging the commission to recognise the APC in Zamfara.

Recall that the ruling party in the two states had threatened they would not allow any elections to take place if they are not allowed to participate in the governorship, National Assembly and state assembly elections.
