INEC okays Zamfara APC for polls

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) yesterday said candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State can now participate in the National Assembly, governorship and state House of Assembly elections.

INEC National Commissioner and Chairman Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, said this in a statement.

The Court of Appeal on Thursday dismissed a lower court ruling that stopped the party’s candidates from contesting.

The governorship and state assembly elections are scheduled for February 23 and March 9.

According to the commission, the decision was due to the Court of Appeal judgment which set aside the Federal High Court judgment for lack of jurisdiction.

“INEC has consistently maintained that it will always obey court judgments and orders. In the case of the APC in Zamfara State, the Federal High Court, Abuja and the Zamfara State High Court issued conflicting orders relating to the participation of the APC in the two strands of elections scheduled for February 23 and  March 9, 20l9,” Okoye said.

He said the commission in compliance with the said order restored the APC to the ballot in the National Assembly, governorship and state House of Assembly elections scheduled for today and March 9, 2019.
