Breaking: INEC bans APC from participating in 2019 elections in Zamfara

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has banned the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC from fielding candidates for elective positions in Zamfara state for the 2019 elections.

According to the electoral body, the decision was taken as a result of the failure of the party to elect its candidates within the stipulated period in accordance with the electoral act.

Recall that the sacked leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State returned Alhaji Mukhtar Shehu Idris as winner of last Wednesday’s botched governorship primary election in the state.

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the party had announced the dissolution of Zamfara APC exco led by Alhaji Lawali M. Liman.
